SHERIDAN, Clare. A Turkish Kaleidoscope. London, Duckworth, [1926].

8vo. Original terracotta cloth, spine lettered in gilt; pp. 223, plates after photographs; text at the beginning and end slightly spotted, else very good; bookplate Wicher-Smit inside front cover.
First edition, getting very rare. Clare Sheridan was Winston Churchill's cousin, and her accomplishments were many. In 1922 she became European correspondent of the American newspaper New York World, and thereafter travelled extensively in Europe and North America (she camped with Charlie Chaplin in California!). The present work provides a record of her visit to Constantinople (Istanbul), including excursions into Anatolia, and offers a view without tinted spectacles, and with very good photos.
