Annotated editorial copy with a letter from the Scottish politician and author, in which the adventurer explains that he has sent proofs for his next book from London to Morocco so that he might correct them while in the field.

Original publisher’s cloth, ragged at head of spine, black lettering - a good copy of this first cheap edition. With a letter from Cunningham Grahame tipped on to the front flyleaf: written from 7 Sloane Street in London to his ‘Amigo’, stating that he has ‘sent proofs to British Post Office Tangier Morocco’, postponing a meeting because ‘I am supposed to finish the life of my first “Conquistador”’ - presumably his life of Pedro de Valdivia, published in 1928 - the same year as this cheap edition of his Moroccan Journey. This copy has pencilled corrections scattered throughout: pp138, 140, 145, 148, etc, etc. These seem to be mostly editorial, perhaps made by a printer. On the final pastedown, a page of pencilled notes and page numbers.

An extraordinary figure in Scottish politics and literature, Cunningham Graham’s first language was Spanish and after a childhood in Renfrewshire he made his fortune as a gaucho in Argentina, converted to socialism, became an MP and was instrumental in founding the Scottish National Party as well as writing prolifically throughout his adult life.
