Camden shuffles...

A Prince of the Captivity - John Buchan 1933

Buchan up to his old tricks, this time with Adam Melfort as protagonist. The great war, politics, good vs evil, man vs nature...iceland.

A little trip from the Heath down to Camden markets a couple of weekends ago lead me to a cosy little nook offering all kinds of goodies, namely penguin classics, a few dotted first editions and Buchan's Prince of the Captivity, which I had to bundle off with. Although generally having some constraint with unnecessary consumption of goods, I often think the purchase of a second hand book from a shop or stall is rather similar to taking a photograph of a landscape visited and sought to be remembered.
