Lord Mayford und die Expedition nach Ägypten

Lord Mayford und die Expedition nach Ägypten

Lord Mayford liebt die Ruhe seines Landsitzes. Hin und wieder besucht er London, auch wenn er das Stadtleben oft anstrengend findet. Das gilt besonders, wenn Mrs. Starke gerade eine ihrer Entdeckungsfahrten plant. Eine Reise mit Freizeit-Archäologen ist das Letzte, wonach Lord Mayford der Sinn steht. Doch nachdem er in eine Wette mit dem unbeholfenen Lord Doddlington verwickelt wird, finden sich beide unerwartet auf einer Expedition nach Ägypten wieder. "Lord Mayford und die Expedition nach Ägypten" ist eine Abenteurerzählung aus dem frühen 19. Jahrhundert voller Wortwitz im Stil von P.G. Wodehouse. Lord Mayford likes the peace and quiet of his country estate. Every now and then he visits London, even if he finds city life often strenuous. This is especially true when Mrs Starke is planning one of her voyages of discovery. A journey with spare-time archaeologists is the last thing Lord Mayford wants. But after he gets embroiled in a wager with the bumbling Lord Doddlington, both find themselves unexpectedly on an expedition to Egypt. The story of Lord Mayford and the expedition to Egypt is an early 19th century adventure tale filled with wordplay in the style of P.G. Wodehouse.
