Présentation de l'éditeur

'How is the mind agitated and bewildered, at being thus, as it were, placed on the borders of a new world!' - William Bartram 'Thus you see, dear sister, the manners of mankind do not differ so widely as our voyage writers would have us believe.' - Mary Wortley Montagu With widely varied motives - scientific curiosity, commerce, colonization, diplomacy, exploration, and tourism - British travellers fanned out to every corner of the world in the period the Critical Review labelled the 'Age of Peregrination'. The Empire, already established in the Caribbean and North America, was expanding in India and Africa and founding new outposts in the Pacific in the wake of Captain Cook's voyages. In letters, journals, and books, travellers wrote at first-hand of exotic lands and beautiful scenery, and encounters with strange peoples and dangerous wildlife. They conducted philosophical and political debates in print about slavery and the French Revolution, and their writing often affords unexpected insights into the writers themselves. This anthology brings together the best writing from authors such as Daniel Defoe, Celia Fiennes, Mary Wollstonecraft, Olaudah Equiano, Mungo Park, and many others, to provide a comprehensive selection from this emerging literary genre. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating 11 août 2006
Par Stephen Balbach - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an anthology composed of 77 excerpts from travel writings by English authors in the 18th century. It is organized into sections or categories geographically (South Pacific, Europe, etc..). Each excerpt/author is preceded with a pithy historical background, as is each section, and there is a general Preface. The selections are rounded from the well known Captain Cook to little known private letters of women travelers to slave narratives to exploration accounts.

Overall this is like having a well-read instructor introduce you to the best and most well known travel writing, and most interesting sections from each text. Many of these accounts I have heard of before but never would have the time to read in full, but in excerpt form I discovered about 20 that were so good I would like to continue on and read the books in full. The editors notes are very learned (if not too pithy) and give excellent context and background to each text and category - it is certainly possible to study history through travel narratives, and have a great time doing it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Non-European parts were great 13 mars 2014
Par S. Clark - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'd already read the full-length versions of 8 of the Africa and North American selections, but that's OK.

The non-European selections gave me a lot of great ideas for downloading free PDFs.

The European parts were pretty hit or miss, mostly miss. I'm mostly interested in life in uncivilized areas and Europe was just too over-civilized at this period in history. The parts about the French Revolution and the battlefield at Waterloo were pretty good, though. This is definitely a great purchase, especially if you can buy a real cheap used version.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting anthology of travel early travel writing. 6 septembre 2012
Par City Rain - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is an interesting collection, though hardly definitive, but then, what could be, given the extent and variety of travel writing during the period. Still, it is worth reading if only to suggest how travel writing has evolved over the years.
