Three Men in a Boat is a humorous account of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. Th e book was initially intended to be a serious travel guide, with accounts of local history along the route, but the humorous elements took over to thepoint where the serious and somewhat sentimental passages seem a distracti on to the comic novel. One of the most praised things about Three Men in a Boat is how undated it appears to modern readers — the jokes seem fresh andwitty even today. Wear and tear to spine and corners, spine browned, cloth rubbed and bubbled, lacking front free endpaper, smudges to some leaves, e lse a good, solid copy. As is. 100.00
