Translated by Phyllis Megroz.London, Victor Gollancz, 1934 Stock Code: 101479
NotesFirst 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 title page.
Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in gilt. With the dust jacket.
Boards scratched and slightly marked, some foxing to contents. A very good copy in the jacket with shallow chip to foot of front panel and chip to centre of panel affecting one letter.
