12 Rhodes, Geoffrey. Dalmatia: The New Riviera. Illustrated with Numerous Photographs and a Map.
London: Stanley Paul & Co., Ltd., (1931). First Edition. 
Octavo, purple cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 287 pp. Very Good, with slight bowing to covers, in a tape-repaired dust jacket. From dust jacket: Dalmatia has always been a country with such interest for the travelled and cultured few that the standard books about it are expensive and difficult to procure. The present work aims at presenting a useful birds-eye view for the intending visitor and others. Dalmatia has lately been rediscovered on account of its wonderful health-giving seaside resorts and the beauty of the scenery. The becoming national dress is worn everywhere, and the people are friendly and only too willing to welcom visitors. Sunbathing on the beach, gay music and dancing in the hotels, and yet the tourist has merely to turn right or left to find himself in the narrow winding streets of an entrancing mediaeval city where no motorcar can penetrate and he can accordingly wander at will. The traveller can visit the laurel groves that provided the Romans with their bays, while Minerva taught the women to embroider the Imperial robes. This new Riviera is within easy reach of London and promises to be the coming great resort for English people.
