Description: Land of Toulouse-Lautrec, the Tarn is divided into four quarters: the chalky, gleaming white soils of the North; the schist merging into grey-blue slate to the East; the rich marly soil nurturing the golden cereal crops to the West; and the Montagne Noir with its forests of sombre green to the South.
Illustrated throughout with stunning colour photographs – many of which are full-page.
Burgundy cloth boards with embossed gilded text on front and spine. Upper corners bumped; lower straight. Spine also straight. Dust jacket has some light scratches and a tiny closed tear near one of the corners. Otherwise complete and in very good condition.
