16 Colour plates and further B&W illustrations. From the preface to the 1st Edition: “It has been the writer’s endeavour to describe every place along the whole coast from Marseilles to Pisa, omitting only a few towns close to Genoa which have suffered through the growth of factories and uninteresting houses. He has not thought it necessary to discuss the climate and rainfall of each place, nor has he said anything as to the journey out to the Rivieras, everyone knowing that the shortest and easiest route from London is by way of Dover, Calais and Paris to Marseilles or Genoa.”
