Time Well Spent - Evelyn Cheesman

London: The Travel Book Club, 1960, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good+ — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a little soiling overall, a mark to the top corner of the upper panel. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned, heaving to the blanks.

From the cover: “Victorian modesty, British understatement and the ruthless realism of both Elizabethan ages go to the make-up of Evelyn Cheesman. She has made many single-handed journeys to the islands inhabited by gentle Polynesians and violent Papuans and has perceived, with something of a divine sympathy, how these races think and feel. She has pursued with unfaltering industry and unflagging enthusiasm her quest for insects to enlarge the scientific knowledge of mankind.
