2008 Brand new 9 x 11 hardback. 410 pages. Barzini was already an accomplished and recognized journalist when he joined Prince Scipione Borghese's Itala team. Borghese was
single-minded in his determination to complete the journey, win the race and bring glory to Italy. That he was successful at all three makes Luigi Barzini's of their struggles and triumphs even more compelling. Peking to Paris became an overnight success, translated into 11 languages and published all over the world. It became nearly compulsory reading for generations of Italians, who learned from its easy narrative to appreciate the extraordinary accomplishments of their countrymen. This 100th Anniversary Edition of Luigi Barzini's Peking to Paris published by Demontreville Press remains largely true to his original work, as published in English in 1908 by Mitchell Kennerley of New York. Slight changes in grammar and spelling have been made to improve the readability for modern readers.
