Traveller's Joy. The Diary of Josephine Mary Bagot. Part 1: 1926-1927

Adelaide, The Hassell Press, 1948.

Octavo, viii, 119 pages plus a frontispiece.

Quarter green cloth and papered boards with the title printed in green on the front covers; spine very lightly sunned; a near-fine copy.

'Twenty-five copies printed for private circulation' is printed on the verso of the title page: consider it rare. Loosely inserted is a printed 'With the Compliments of the Editor' slip (identifying Walter Hervey Bagot). A handwritten note attests to the fact the book was received as a gift in 1963; 'It was Miss L.K. Symon's own copy and was given to me by her'. Lesley Kilmeny Symon was one of the daughters of Sir Josiah Symon (1846-1934), South Australian lawyer and politician; he was a member of the Australian Senate in the First Australian Parliament, and an Attorney-General of Australia (and much else besides). An account of travels mainly in Italy, with forays into Spain and France. A second volume appeared in 1950.
