This is a facsimile reprint of the 1800 edition of The British Tourists, one of the earliest example of pocket-sized travel guides in England.
The entries cover all areas of the British Isles, including Scotland, Wales and Ireland; and this second edition is supplemented with the additional volume for Oxfordshire, Cambridge and London which was omitted from the first edition.
Collecting texts by highly reputed eighteenth-century authors, including Samuel Johnson, Thomas Pennant, and Arthur Young, it became a unique anthology of travel narratives as well as a practical guide.
Published around the period of turn of the nineteenth century, it is a valuable primary source for anyone studying eighteenth-century British culture and the beginning of the new century of travel.
