Лондон. 1903 год. Издательство "Ward, Lock & Co".Издательский переплет. В тексте имеются рисунки на отдельных листах. Сохранность хорошая. If, at the time of which I am writing, you had searched the river Thames from Iffley Lock to— shall we say—Richmond Bridge, I doubt very much whether you would have discovered so luxurious a floating home as the houseboat Love in Idleness, then lying by Shiplake Ferry. As you looked at it you would probably have argued that it was an ideal craft in which to spend a week-end, and indeed you would not have been wrong. The boat's arrangements came as near perfection as human art and ingenuity could bring them. Then again, as every one who knew her admitted, it would have been impossible to have found a more charming hostess than the beautiful Mrs. Dartrell, the owner of the boat in question.
