I just re-discovered this old classic by David Mitchell and found some fascinating quotes and stories inside. It was published back in the 1980's by Lookout Publication, which when I first came to Spain, was one of the few glossy and quality mags dealing with Living in Spain. Below is a review I left on goodreads, and to the right is the only link I could find on Amazon. Whether it is really available for just 1 pence, who knows. But I'd say its definitely one for your bookshelf - even if it may cost a little more.
Excellent Account by Mitchell of the travellers that have passed through and left their thoughts on Spain since the 17th century. Mitchell was a journalist and contributor to the Lookout magazine and this appears to be a compilation of his research on how the country has been portrayed by English speakers over the last 4 centuries. Particularly apt, are his chapters on tourism in Spain during the last half of the 20th century - something so bitingly relevant still today.
A difficult to find book, but one nevertheless worth picking up if you see a copy, if for no other reason than to gain a brief overview as to the rich legacy such writers have left.
