This work is comprised of narratives by the most distinguished nineteenth-century travellers. It is embellished with fine engravings on steel by Buttre, and illustrated by over forty wood engravings by Orr, with thirteen authentic maps by Schonberg. It is a facsimile reprint of the revised and enlarged edition published in two volumes by Moore, Wilstach, Keys in New York in 1860.

Published in 1860, this is one of the very early encyclopedias on the history of travel and travel writings.

Compiled by Bayard Taylor, popular travel writer and journalist in late nineteenth-century America, it covers all major travels and exploration by westerners to non-western countries from the beginning of nineteenth century, when `the age of exploration and discovery' started.

Including maps and illustrations, this Encyclopedia is an easy-to-use tool for scholars and students to research the history of travel and western encounters of other cultures.
