191 printed pages. Map endpapers. Loosely inserted is a signed letter on headed notepaper from Norwich (1929-2018) to Jonathan Haw. 22.5 x 28.5 cm. Original green cloth. Spine slightly faded and stained. Musty smell. Complete with photographic dust jacket (edges slightly torn with small loss at the top edge on the back panel). Jonathan Haw was a rower at Keble College, Oxford, who established the New York branch of the legal firm Slaughter & May and who served as Master of the Armourer & Brasier's Company in 2008 and 2013. The 2002 letter gives details of bookshops that stocked second-hand copies of this book, and says that it never ran to a second edition, expressing gratification that people were still interested in reading it. It was Norwich's first published book, based on his second visit to Mount Athos with a Greek friend Costa, who took photos, and Sacheverell Sitwell's son Reresby, (who bought a rucksack stuffed with luxury food items from Fortnum & Mason, where he worked) who were both at school at Eton together. Reresby wrote about the itinerary of the trip and Norwich wrote a historical essay on Mount Athos- in the days when its Orthodox monastic complexes were virtually unvisited and devoid of external contact, on the secretive peninsular in northern Greece.
