GRAHAM, Stephen The gentle Art of Tramping. London, Robert Holden, .
8vo. Original cloth with dust-wrappers; pp. viii, 264, frontispiece in pagination after lino-cut; wrappers a little frayed; a very good copy in the rarely seen wrappers.
First edition, second impression, three months after the first. This is Stephen Graham's very gentle and almost spiritual essay on walking for long periods of time, minimizing equipment, the immersion of the self into slow movement in landscape. Graham had been influenced by Ruskin and Russian peasants' Orthodox spirituality, and might have been an influence on Jack Kerouac.
