A treasure-chest from the golden age of travel. Annotated, humorous highlights from over 100 eye-witness accounts (diaries, journals, collected letters, reports, travel guides) written between 1750 & 1918. By some of the most famous English and American authors of the 18th and 19th centuries, plus a host of eccentric parsons, antiquarians and ladies of independent spirit. A huge read!
