[light wear to book's lower extremities, otherwise clean and tight; jacket lightly insect-nibbled along bottom edges of both flaps, a few tiny nicks at top and bottom edges of front panel, modest chipping at top of rear panel (no loss of text)]. (cartoon drawings) INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the ffep: "For ____ ___ / with best wishes / Richard Armour." "Emulating Phileas Fogg, who went around the world in 80 days, [the author] has gone around the year in 365 days, each one marked by some unforgettable event in history." A randomly-chosen example: "On June 4, 1070, Roquefort cheese was accidentally discovered by an anonymous shepherd (no, his name was not Roquefort) who left his lunch of bread and cheese in a cave for several weeks, and returned to find the moldy cheese delicious -- or the delicious cheese moldy, depending on your point of view."
