  • Book Cover for George Borrow in Portugal and North-West Spain, by Ian Robertson

    George Borrow in Portugal and North-West Spain, by Ian Robertson

    £10.00

    George Borrow in Portugal and North-West Spain, by Ian Robertson

    £10.00

    Ian Robertson was born in Tokyo in 1928 and educated at Stowe. He spent several years working in publishing and with specialist booksellers. His interest in the Peninsula had long preceded his decision to make it his base for two decades while engaged in compiling four editions each of ‘Blue Guides’ to both Spain and Portugal among other titles in that series.

    Inevitably, George Borrow’s peregrinations in the Peninsula became an inextricable if comparatively minor part of his general interest in the Cosas de España. Prompted and amended by Peter Missler, this was to result in two substantial studies, on Borrow in Portugal and on Borrow’s expedition through the north-western provinces of Spain in 1837.

    Orders received by 31 March 2018 will be eligible for a 10% discount. A PDF of the book may be obtained for £3.00 please get in touch if you would like to order one.

    George Borrow’s Second Tour of Wales (1857)

    £15.00

    We invite readers to follow in Borrow’s tracks, reading his notebooks as he wrote them with all the quirks, raptures and uncertainties of his discoveries, with his idiosyncratic Welsh spelling, rapid vignettes of those he meets on the road, the inns where he stays and his wonder at the landscapes surrounding him. It was a remarkable journey.
