Cities and Sea-Coasts and Islands

Arthur Symons

Arthur Symons's collection of twenty-six essays on travel in Spain, life in London, and sojourns among islands and sea-coasts of France, England, and Ireland first appeared in the United States in 1919. His verbal portraits of the places he visited, whether bold and colorful or sensitive and merely suggestive, are as intriguing and interesting today as when he first wrote them.

"Cities and Sea-Coasts and Islands is a book to be read over and over. It is a permanent addition to English literature." --Catholic World
