About the Neil M. Gunn - Highland Pack (1st edition)

Description

Most of these notes on country life appeared under a pseudonym in the pages of The Scots Magazine during the early years of the last war [1914-18]. Mostly they are concerned with ordinary day-to-day happenings around a farmhouse in the Highlands, though occasionally they touch on excursions to remote places, to the Hebrides, to the northern and western seas and the decks of fishing boats. The pack of the title is that of the packmen, door to door salesmen who crossed the Highlands on foot, selling goods from a rucksack.

Published by Faber & Faber, 1949. 1st edition. Hardback. Ex-libris.

The book is in acceptable-good condition showing clear signs of previous ownership. Blemishes to include:- joints cracked or partially broken; bumped corners / spine; marked or torn pages; inscriptions or library stamps; dust jacket chipped or torn with some loss. Overall a little grubby.

This is a pre-owned, donated book.
