240 ff. aprox. written on recto only, on onionskin paper in black ink, with corrections and emendations throughout. 8vo (8 x 4 3/4 inches). Bound in full dark green morocco by Zaehnsdorf, dated 1906, with blindstamp for exhibition bindings on back pastedown, all corners of the covers tooled with a post-horn device within an ornamental frame, dark green silk endpapers, gilt on the rough. Spine sunned, else fine. 240 ff. aprox. written on recto only, on onionskin paper in black ink, with corrections and emendations throughout. 8vo (8 x 4 3/4 inches). The autograph printer's manuscript for the lead article for the March 1906 issue of Scribner's Magazine, recounting an early long-distance motoring trip undertaken by Norman with two American friends, which took them over perilous alipne passes. Scientific American described it as "the best appreciation of the true charm of motoring ever written." Sir Henry Norman (1858-1959) was an early member of the Automobile Club of Great Britain and Ireland and had occasion as an M.P. (elected in 1900) to represent the interests of motorists. "Norman joined the staff of the Pall Mall Gazette under the editorship of the celebrated W. T. Stead, and became a prominent and prolific journalist in the heyday of the 'new journalism'. He maintained his links with the United States, working as a London correspondent for the New York Times. An astute networker, Norman reported on literary, theatrical, and political matters, and came to know such figures as Robert Louis Stevenson, William Archer, Walter Pater, Henry Irving, George Bernard Shaw, and Walt Whitman. In 1887 he set off on a four-year world tour on behalf of several international newspapers, reporting from places as far apart as Canada, Siberia, the Philippines, Siam, and Japan. The trip gave him material for his successful travel books The Real Japan (1892) and The Peoples and Politics of the Far East (1895)" (ODNB).
