(SOVIET RUSSIA; FRENCH POLITICS.) HERRIOT, Edouard.
Eastward from Paris.
Translated by Phyllis Megroz.
First edition, first impression of the book in which the thrice-elected Premier recounts his visit to Soviet Russia in the summer of 1933. Herriot largely avoids political issues in his narrative, and instead presents himself as an enquiring traveller. The book was first published in Paris earlier the same year under the title Orient. From the publisher’s archive, with their stamp to the front panel of the jacket and front pastedown.
