Rubbing to lower edges of boards, pages are clean and bright; unclipped jacket creased along upper edge, small mark on front panel. "Here's a departure: a travel anthology organised not by region, mode of transport or manner of writing but by the date when the entry was written. That makes for some delightfully odd encounters: under November 30, for example, there's Dickens on a sea passage in the 1860s followed by the rock singer Ian Hunter (of Mott the Hoople) on New York in the 1970s. The collection ranges from the 16th century to the present, concentrating on the period from 1750 to 1950, the classic era of European exploration and diary-writing. It reminds us, among other things, that "travellers" have been complaining about "tourists" for a very long time." (Daily Telegraph) 528 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
