From reminders to travel with one's own portable bath to tips on how to hail a cab, today's intrepid female traveller has much to learn from her nineteenth century forebears. Hints to Lady Travellers combines archive material from a book of the same name first published in 1889 with anecdotes from pioneering Victorian female travellers such as Lady Annabella Isabella Blunt, offering a fascinating insight into the nature of travel for women over a century ago. Brimming with practical advice and period detail, this travel compendium also includes material from famous figures such as Gertrude Bell, a writer and archaeologist who helped to map the boundaries of the country that became Iraq, and Isabella Bird Bishop, the first woman to be inducted into the Royal Geographical Society. Quirky, engaging and informative, Hints to Lady Travellers will appeal both to travellers themselves and to anyone interested in the history of travel and exploration. Do not leave home without it.
