Siren Land-Norman Douglas's first book-was published in 1911 and has remained unsurpassed. He takes as his subject the region around Naples, especially the Sorrentine Peninsula and Capril. On these 'odorous Siren heights far removed from the duty's sacred call' he 'mediterraneanises' himself during a leisurely summer visit, readjusting his outlook and 'indulging his genius' for the enjoyment of life, in which the reader gratefull participates. Wit, erudition, c; larity, elegance of style-all the qualities which made Douglas the ideal writer of travel books-are displayed in this work. 198 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books, and all types of Academic Literature. )
