Mansions, Men and Tunbridge Ware. Ethel YOUNGHUSBAND.

Mansions, Men and Tunbridge Ware.

Slough: The Windsor Press, 1949. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.[14], 183 [3]. With 21 photographic illustrations. In publisher's brown cloth with black titles to spine. With original tan dust-jacket with black titles and red illustrations. A small mark to upper board, possibly from a sticker. Light browning and chipping to jacket spine; clear vertical fold almost worn through. Very good indeed. Sister of travel writer Francis Younghusband, and author of her own travel narrative 'Glimpses of East Africa and Zanzibar' (1910), Ethel seems to have died during the second world war, five years before the publication of this book. Having written it up from notes during the war, it certainly seems possible that she largely completed the book before her death, though there is no mention of this event either in the preface or the jacket, and the '1939-1945 world war' is referred to on the final page. In the book itself, the author travels in Kent and Sussex in search of the places depicted on Tunbridge Ware. Item #48010
