The Road to Roundabout - Michael BurtLondon & Melbourne: Ward, Lock & Co., 1937, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper worn at the edges with loss to the spine ends and corners. A little age-toning to the edges of the text block. Minor age-toning to the lining papers. The contents complete, clean and tight otherwise.
From the cover: “A first class adventure story spiced with romance and good humour, and told with the author’s distinctive skill and enthusiasm. Nigel Lang-ridge is no conventional fiction-hero, but a quiet, rather diffident young man who captures our interest from the outset. Misfortune and political expediency conspire to wreck his career; but, cheered on by the fascinating Marjorie Chichester, he fights back with indomitable resource and courage. It is indeed a roundabout road which leads Nigel from the Sussex Downs to India and back again, but there is not a dull yard in the journey. A thoroughly entertaining book, which will appeal to every class of reader.”
