As a freelance reporter in 1923, he scooped the story of the opening of King Tut's tomb for the Daily Express, beating the Times reporter who had been granted exclusive coverage. In 1927, he traveled around England by private car, describing his journeys in In Search of England, the first of his popular travelogues. His Through Lands of the Bible (1938), was used as a guidebook by British soldiers in World War II. Morton settled in Somerset West, near Cape Town, South Africa, in the late 1940s. Staple at top left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
