Ancient Wisdom: The Forgotten City

The Forgotten City is #1 in Barbara Cartland's Ancient Wisdom series that was published by Bantam in August 1978. It's the story of a woman who travels to Asia in search of enlightenment.

Francis Marshall illustrates the cover of this book, but it's somewhat indistinct because of the nature of the picture, which almost looks like a pencil drawing. We see our couple embracing high above a city. There looks like a guide in furs standing down the hill beyond them. It's an interesting picture and probably does the book justice. I've never read any of the AW series, so don't know for sure!
