FRANK MCLYNN - Of No Country: An Anthology of the Works of Sir Richard Burton

Title: Of No Country: An Anthology of the Works of Sir Richard Burton
Description: Scribners, 1990. First Edition, Hardcover. Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. 9780356179865 First edition, first printing. Clean, crisp pages, bumping to lower corners of boards, lovely jacket design, unclipped, lightly shelfworn. Published to coincide with the centenary of his death, this book traces Burton's remarkable exploits in his own words and those of historian Frank McLynn. From Burton's prodigious output - he wrote 43 volumes on his explorations and travels, over 100 articles and almost 30 volumes of translations - McLynn has selected writings from the erudite to the erotic, epitomising Burton's unique and complex character. They provide insights to a colourful life and career, from expulsion from Oxford to the controversial translation of "Arabian Nights". The anthology includes excerpts from "Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Mecca", "First Footsteps in East Africa" and "Lake Regions of Central Africa", as well as more obscure snippets and manuscript material, some of it never previously published. 192 pages.
