Fraying to the top and bottom edges of the spine; there is a very light stain at the top-right corner of the back cover. Tight binding. Bright gilt lettering and illustration on the front cover and spine. Tight binding. No loose pages. Name written in pencil on front end paper. The pages are mostly clean and white with no writing, tears or stains found; some foxing to the frontispiece, title page, and to the tissue paper in between them. Overall the book is in very good condition.
Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes recounts Robert Louis Stevenson's 120 mile, 12 day hike, accompanied only by his stubborn and unwieldy donkey, through the Cevennes of south-central France. A pioneering piece of outdoor literature, it is one of Stevenson's earliest works, and one of the earliest accounts of hiking and camping for recreation rather than necessity. Stevenson's route is still popular today; recently when asked why the Scotsman still informs the identity of the Cevennes, a politician and historian of the area remarked "Because he showed us the landscape that makes us who we are."
