A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy by Mr. Yorick. Illustrated by Vera Willoughby.

Description
Hardback. This volume is fully covered in bookcloth (in 'watered' lines of cream, pale pink, pink and pale brown in a 'wave' effect). Pasted onto the top left corner of the front paste-down is a small paper label with "From the Library of Kenneth Monkman at Shandy Hall". Stamped onto the bottom of the reverse of the title page is a circular stamp with "Laurence Sterne Trust Shandy Hall" with inside "The Kenneth Monkman Collection". In the centre of the rear paste-down is a small red paper circle (similar to a wax seal) which is partially pasted down. The catch-word is to the bottom right of every page. The title piece is on a blue backing with "A Sentimental Journey &c." in impressed gilt letters.
