--This is the first part of a new facsimile series which reprints The Modern Traveller , originally published in 30 volumes between 1825 and 1829.

--Edited by Josiah Conder, known as the editor of journals like The Eclectic Review or The Patriot, The Modern Traveller was a successful series of travel books published just prior to Britain's transport revolution which saw the development and rapid expansion of roads and railways.

--Reflecting Britain's imperial ambitions and the expansion of its Empire around the globe, the series had global range, including coverage of the Middle East, Africa, North & South America, and Asia. It provided general readers with the latest information on each country's geography, history, political situation, culture, customs, major cities, travel routes along historic sites, scenic spots, and so on.

--Each volume contains illustrations and foldout maps which are all faithfully reproduced in the reprint.

--Important primary source for researchers and students of tourism, history of the British Empire, and Orientalism.
