Today Marianne North is remembered for the gallery in Kew Garden named after her. Alongside Isabella Bird, she was the most popular and well-known lady-traveller in nineteenth-century England. She travelled to all parts of the world and left numerous botanical drawings. Unlike Isabella Bird, however, she did not leave any travel records and only the three volumes reprinted here are the textual source of her travelling. Compiled by her sister, these volumes are more like a chronological history of Marianne North's travelling than a biography and provide indispensable material for those studying Victorian lady-travellers.
