The Mediterranean: Saga of a Sea - Emil Ludwig

McGraw Hill, 1942, Hardback ..
Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only. A little shaken, rubbed and soiled at the covers. Heavily faded at spine, less so unevenly over the boards. Edges of the textblock lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

Maps to the endpapers. From the preface: “Among all the seas the Mediterranean is unique, as an element and as a centre. By nature it is almost a lake, and yet it is not; for Gibraltar, the Dardanelles, and Suez, which confine its freedom, are dramatic in their causes and effects. The third of these, the canal, has influenced the life of the sea in most recent times.”
