The Riviera Golf Courses

Washington, Texas: Dormy House Press, 2015. 59p. illus. cloth. 1st ed. ltd to 200 copies only signed and numbered by the publisher Dick Verinder and Editor Neil Crafter. In 1913 The Times of London planned to publish six small books on a diverse range of topics in what was called The Times Series. Five books including Bernard Darwin's A Dickens Pilgrimage were published. The sixth book, advertised as The Riviera Golf Courses, was to contain a series of Bernardo's articles from The Times written during a 1913 trip with his wife Elinor to the French Riviera, however, most likely due to the advent of World War I, this final book of the series was never published. Dormy House Press now presents this 'long-lost' Darwin book - reminiscent in size, design, and paper of its sister book, A Dickens Pilgrimage. Although the original series of books were not illustrated, guest editor Neil Crafter has added period photographs and a frontispiece portrait of Bernard Darwin c1912. Limited quantity available.
