ISBN 978-1517209643 Centre for Albanian Studies, London 2015 241 pp. “Through the Lands of the Serb,”  originally published in 1904, was the first book of the English traveller and writer Edith Durham (1863-1944). It is a literary reflection of three of her early expeditions to Montenegro and Serbia (as well as northern Albania and Kosovo) in 1901, 1902 and 1903, and provides great insight into regions of Europe that were little known and rarely visited at that time. One cannot help but admire the energy, resolve and courage of this indefatigable Edwardian lady travelling on her own through regions that were reputed to be extremely dangerous.
