On offer is a charming, original manuscript relic of an early 20th Century tour of North Africa written by author, lecturer and professional world traveler William A. Brooks of Wellesley Hills Massachusetts. This travel journal is typed, likely from handwritten notes and likely prepared for publication though we cannot find any such publications. Brooks was a noted speaker and casual research finds numerous mentions of his holding lectures about his various trips from the early 1900s through the 1920s. He has a wonderful narrative style moving from sophisticated enthusiast to folksy world wise traveller. This manuscript is titled: "Mosques and Minarets. Glimpses of Mohammedan Life in Tangier, Algiers, and among the Temples and Tombs of Old Egypt." There are 34 typed pages. There are holograph corrections throughout. Measures about 8½" x 11". Overall G+.
