The Charm of Travel By Edward Popple
eBook (PDF): $7.00

On the last day of July, 1908, school teacher Ted Popple and his unusually-named friend, Crawford Plenderleith, left England carrying a "change of underclothing, materials for a year's... More > sketching" and a pocket chess board. Under a scorching summer sun, in heavy tweeds, white hats and dark glasses, they cycled from Bordeaux into Spain and back. The following winter, Ted wrote a wryly-amusing longhand account of the trip in a leather-bound notebook. A gifted watercolorist, he illustrated the text with his own delightful illustrations. Though not intended for commercial publication, the book provides a fascinating picture of the life and customs of the region seen through the eyes of a curious and observant traveller. For decades it lay forgotten, until it passed to us, his grandsons. In the centenary year of the original trip, we’re publishing the complete text and illustrations in a full-color edition, with an Afterword describing our own attempt in 2000 to re-cycle the route. - James and Rob White< Less
