First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original beige cloth with green titles to the upper board and spine. Illustrated with nine photographic plates (including a coloured portrait frontispiece) and a folding colour map of Scotland. Eight page publisher's catalogue to the rear. A very good copy, the binding firm with some bumping and minor fraying at the spine tips and corners, the cloth with a few marks and some toning to the spine. The contents, with a few foxing spots to the margins at prelims, are otherwise entirely complete and clean throughout, the map bright and without tears.

Inscribed by Olivia Graham in black ink on the front endpaper "Gladys Nesbitt / from / the authoress [underlined] / June 1923". A scarce book of motoring adventures written by Olivia Graham (of Edmond Castle, Cumbria) at a time when Lady Motorists were not common. The author was a member of the Royal Automobile Club and during the time covered in this book drove a Flanders 20 and Argyll 12/18.
