Inscribed on the front free endpaper: 'Colin Davidson / from / Robert Byron'.

Patrick Leigh Fermor, who knew both men, wrote of Davidson: 'A delightful, civilised man I got to know years later. I'd met Robert Byron a year and a half before in a deafening, smoke filled nearly pitch-black night club ... where everyone was pretty tight'.

A ground breaking book that brought Byzantine studies to a new, eager audience.
