Edith’s admirers

From Miss Primrose Peacock
Sir, - Elizabeth Gowing (Interview, 12 July) is totally incorrect in stating that no one in Britain has heard of Edith Durham. Hundreds of us have, and she has a very high profile in Albania, where In the Footsteps Tours were organised by someone in Yorkshire.

Friends of Albania, as a subscription organisation, 1991-2010, has now closed, although many Albanologists are still in regular contact, some dating from the 1970s. Our very large archive, including all Miss Durham's books, was sold to the University of Princeton in 2011, as no British university would pur- chase it.
