MIDDLESEX

(London: Adam and Charles Black, 1907).

A SELDOM SEEN BLACK TRAVEL BOOK, AND A VERY PRETTY ONE TOO. Fulleylove was one of the publisher's favorite illustrators, and rightly so. His paintings rank among the finest to be found in Black's travel books, and he was one of England's most famous landscape artists of the period. In this attractive volume our focus is set on Middlesex, the historic county of the south east. Famous sights such as Hampton Court, Kew Bridge, Highgate, etc., are all beautifully described in both words and pictures. Item #30150
