I should not like to ask an indulgent and idle public to saunter about with me under a misapprehension. It would be more agreeable to invite it to go nowhere than somewhere; for almost every one has been somewhere, and has written about it. The only compromise I can suggest is, that we shall go somewhere, and not learn anything about it. The instinct of the public against any thing like information in a volume of this kind is perfectly justifiable; and the reader will perhaps discover that this is illy adapted for a text-book in schools, or for the use of competitive candidates in the civil-service examinations.

Isabella Bird travels abroad in Canada and the United States in the 1850s. As an Englishwoman and a lone female, she travels as far as Chicago, Prince Edward Island, and Cincinatti. Her observations on the trials and tribulations of the journeys are astute, if formed by her place and time in history. Adventures with pickpockets, omnibuses, cholera, and rat invested hotels deter her not.

Smollett describes in great detail the natural phenomena, history, social life, economics, diet and morals of the places he visited. Smollett had a lively and pertinacious curiosity, and, as his novels prove, a very quick eye. He foresaw the merits of Cannes, then a small village, as a health-resort, and the possibilities of the Corniche road.

Heinrich Heine beschreibt in dem Werk seine Reise als Student von Göttingen durch den Harz über den Brocken bis nach Ilsenburg. Er begegnet dabei bekannten und unbekannten Zeitgenossen, die er teils ausführlich beschreibt und mit anderen Personen, teils geschichtlichen Protagonisten, vergleicht. So trifft er in Göttingen den Mediziner und (wie Heine) jüdischen Burschenschafter Karl Friedrich Heinrich Marx und gibt den gemeinsamen Austausch über Medizin sowie Marx' Abhandlung Goettingen in medicinischer, physischer und historischer Hinsicht wieder.

The beauties of nature are scattered with a more lavish hand across the country lying between the summit of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the shores where the surf romps and rolls over the auriferous sands of the Pacific, in Golden Gate Park, than in a journey of the same length in any other part of the world. Such, at least, is the verdict of many whose fortune it has been to traverse that favored stretch of country. Nothing but the limited power of man’s eyes prevents him from standing on the top of the mountains and surveying, at a glance, the whole glorious panorama that stretches away for more than two hundred miles to the west, terminating in the gleaming waters of the Pacific Ocean. Could he do this, he would behold, for the first seventy-five or eighty miles, a vast, billowy sea of foot- hills, clothed with forests of sombre pine and bright, evergreen oaks; and, lower down, dense patches of white-blossomed chaparral, looking in the enchanted distance like irregular banks of snow. Then the world-renowned valley of the Sacramento River, with its level plains of dark, rich soil, its matchless fields of ripening grain, traversed here and there by streams that, emerging from the shadowy depths of the foot-hills, wind their way, like gleaming threads of silver, across the fertile plain and join the Sacramento, which receives them, one and all, in her matronly bosom and hurries with them øn to the sea.

It is a travel history book. On hearing a recital of some adventures which had occurred to me during my long voyages, many of my friends have frequently begged of me to publish a narrative of them, which might perhaps be interesting. M. Alexandre Dumas was publishing, under the title of 'The Thousand-and-One Phantoms', a romance, one of the principal personages of which, in a voyage to the Philippine Islands, must have known me when I was residing at Jala - Jala, in the colony that I founded there. It must be evident that the lively romancist has ranked me in the category of his Thousand-and-One Phantoms.

I returned to England in the Canterbury East India ship.

L'Abrégé de l'Histoire des Voyages de Laharpe jouit d'un succès qui paraît croître de plus en plus; malgré le grand nombre de volumes dont se compose cet ouvrage estimé, il a été réimprimé deux fois dans un court espace de temps. Cependant le format in-8o, adopté pour ces réimpressions, ne satisfaisait pas toutes les classes de lecteurs. Il restait encore à faire une édition de cet ouvrage, qui réunît à la pureté du texte, la commodité du format, et qui fût à la portée de toutes les fortunes; nous croyons avoir atteint ce but en offrant notre nouvelle édition de l'Abrégé de l'Histoire générale des Voyages. Cet ouvrage est imprimé pour la première fois dans le format in-18, et nous croyons nous rendre agréables au public, en en faisant tirer également sur le format in-12; de sorte qu'on peut le joindre aux éditions qui ont été données dans les mêmes formats du Cours de littérature du même auteur. Nous avons corrigé un grand nombre de fautes échappées au dernier éditeur, quoiqu'il ait mis plus de soin que ses prédécesseurs, à l'impression de cet abrégé. Enfin nous ne négligeons rien pour que notre édition soit rangée au nombre de ces belles réimpressions que les presses françaises s'enorgueillissent de reproduire depuis quelque temps. MM. Firmin Didot ont gravé le caractère, M. Fain donne tous ses soins à l'impression, le papier sort d'une des premières fabriques de France. Le portrait de Laharpe, dont nous pouvons garantir la ressemblance, est gravé par M. Bertonnier, d'après le dessin de M. Devéria; les vignettes, au nombre de soixante, dont les unes représentent les sites, vues, costumes de chaque pays, retracent aussi les scènes historiques que l'on trouve dans le même recueil. MM. Larcher, Baquoy, Delvaux, se chargent de la gravure, tandis que MM. Victor Adam, Devéria, Martinet, en ont fait les dessins d'après les originaux de la collection topographique du cabinet des estampes de la bibliothèque du roi; l'atlas de 15 planches in-4o. est exécuté par M. Blondeau, graveur du roi.

Books of the Marvels of the World" or "Description of the World" (Divisament dou monde), also nicknamed "Il Milione" ("The Million") or "Oriente Poliano", but commonly called "The Travels of Marco Polo", is a 13th-century travelogue written down by Rustichello da Pisa from stories told by Marco Polo, describing the travels of the latter through Asia, Persia, China, and Indonesia between 1271 and 1291. It's been a very famous and popular book since the 14th century, creating the image of Marco Polo as the icon of the bold traveller. Presenting Marco Polo as an important figure at the court of the Mongol leader Kublai Khan, the book was written in Old French by Rustichello da Pisa, a romance author of the time, who was reportedly working from accounts which he had heard from Marco Polo when they were imprisoned in Genoa, having been captured while on a ship.

The following excursion was undertaken for several reasons: the first of which was, that though I had been many times in Paris before, yet I had not once been there since the Revolution, and I was desirous of seeing how far a residence of a few years in France might be practicable and agreeable; secondly, a Counter-Revolution, or, at least, some violent measures were expected, and I was willing to be there at the time, if possible; and lastly, I wanted to examine the gardens near Paris. I must here premise that I sent for a passport from the Secretary of State's office, which I knew could do no harm if it did no good, thinking I should have it for nothing, and obtained one signed by Lord Grenville, but at the same time a demand was made for two guineas and sixpence for the fees; now, as I have had passports from almost all the European nations, all and every one of which were gratis, I sent the pass back; it was however immediately returned to me, and I was told that',A passport is never issued from that office without that fee, even if the party asking for it changes his mind'. I paid the money, and that is all I shall say about the matter.

This book offers the author's perspectives on America, based on extensive theatrical tours taken during the years of 1833, 1834, and 1835 through New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and the South. Especially rich are his descriptions of the theater audiences for whom he performed, describing the differences among the audiences of such cities as New York, Albany, Boston, Pittsburg, and New Orleans. Through these descriptions we can get a feeling for the customs and manners of the residents of these and the other cities.

Er waren op het oogenblik, dat ik mij te Mahé bevond, 1661 kiezers ingeschreven op de kiezerslijsten, onder wie slechts enkele Europeanen, het besturend element, en twee of drie vertegenwoordigers van fransche huizen. In 1820 telde men er volgens een aanteekening uit dien tijd 35 Europeanen, 129 "menschen met hoeden", waarschijnlijk portugeesche kleurlingen, en 2616 "Indiërs". Het is merkwaardig, op te merken, dat er in genoemd jaar niemand trouwde onder de Europeanen en slechts een enkel paar onder de "menschen met hoeden", wat wel heel weinig was. Die bevolking was verdeeld over 336 huizen, waaronder de hutten blijkbaar waren meegerekend, en er waren toen 33 winkels, 52 cantines, 122 open terreinen en 3 velden nelly of rijst.

It must not however be inferred, from any delay in publishing the present volume, that its contents are less worthy of notice than those parts which have already proved so interesting and instructive to a multitude of readers.

The Channel waters were calm and placid as the blue sky above them. Though late autumn the temperature was that of mid-summer. At Calais every one landed as jauntily as though they had just gone through the pleasure of a short yachting trip. As usual there were all sorts and conditions of men and women, and again the curious, the grotesque, the impossible predominated. They streamed across the new quay in a disordered procession, struggling with all that amount of hand-baggage which gets into everyone's way but their own, as they hurry forward to secure for themselves the best seats and most comfortable corners.

Notwithstanding the imbecile prejudices of the native Barbary Jews, such of them who adopt European habits, or who mix with European merchants, are tolerably good members of society, always endeavouring to restrain their own peculiarities. The European Jewesses settled in Mogador, are indeed the belles of society, and attend all the balls (such as they are). The Jewess sooner forgets religious differences than the Jew, and I was told by a Christian lady, it would be a dangerous matter for a Christian gentleman to make an offer of marriage to a Mogador Jewess, unless in downright earnest; as it would be sure to be accepted. Monsieur Delaport, Consul of France, was the first official person who brought prominently forward the native and other Jews into the European society of this place, and since then, these Jews have improved in their manners, and increased their respectability. The principal European Jews are from London, Gibraltar, and Marseilles. Many native Jews have attempted to wear European clothes; and a European hat, or coat, is now the rage among native Jewesses, who all aspire to get a husband wearing either. Such are elements of the progress of the Jewess population in this part of the world, and there is no doubt their position has been greatly ameliorated within the last half century, or since the time of Ali Bey, who thus describes their wretched condition in his days.

The Discovery of Guiana is a book by Sir Walter Raleigh, who wrote this account one year after his 1595 journey to 'Guiana', the Venezuelan region of Guayana. He also visited Trinidad. The book includes some material of a factual nature, but postulates the existence of a gold-rich civilisation on the basis of little evidence. After enjoying several years of high esteem from Queen Elizabeth I, which stemmed in part from his previous exploits at sea, Raleigh suffered a short imprisonment for secretly marrying one of the Queen's ladies-in-waiting. In an attempt to bring himself back into favor, Raleigh sailed to Guiana in 1595, hoping to find gold and other material to exchange or extort. One contemporary scholar remarks of this journey, 'Although the expedition itself was hardly a success—Ralegh conquered no lands, found no stores of wealth, and discovered little not observed by earlier adventurers—he created a triumph for himself by publishing The Discovery'. He returned to Guiana one more time, in 1617, this time after a twelve-year imprisonment at the hands of King James I. Unfortunately for Raleigh, this adventure did not yield more gold, nor did it yield a published account, likely since he was arrested soon after returning, and sentenced to death.

The Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation describes, in the words of the explorers themselves, an astonishing era in which the English grew rapidly aware of the sheer size and strangeness of their world. Mingling accounts of the journeys of renowned adventurers such as Drake and Frobisher with descriptions by other explorers and traders to reveal a nation beginning to dominate the seas, Hakluyt's great work was originally intended principally to assist navigation and trade. It also presents one of the first and greatest modern portraits of the globe.

This book in fact, neither literal autobiography nor pure fiction. The author drew his material from his experiences, from his imagination, and from a variety of travel books when the memories of his experiences are inadequate. The three-week stay on which Typee is based takes place over the course of four months in the narrative. It captures extensively on contemporary accounts by Pacific explorers to add cultural detail to what might otherwise have been a straightforward story of escape, capture, and re-escape.

Dans l’ « Histoire des voyages de Scarmentado » écrit en 1756 par Voltaire, le narrateur raconte ces différents périples et voyages à travers les pays. Dans cet extrait lenarrateur voyage en Hollande, en Espagne, en Turquie et en Perse, et dans chacun de ses pays il se retrouve persécuté à cause de ses opinions. N’étant pas informé des coutumes ou des façons depensées du pays où il est, le narrateur se retrouve dans des situation délicates. Il est ainsi victime de l’intolérance des personnes vis-à-vis de la religion. Ainsi une leçon implicite est soumise, celleque la religion est très importante pour les hommes, qu’on ne plaisante pas là-dessus, mais que cependant elle varie d’un pays à l’autre.

Der Zeitpunkt der Abfahrt und der Plan der Reise können eingehalten werden, sobald die Schiffe ausgerüstet und die Astronomen und Naturforscher, welche unbekannte Meere befahren sollen, gewählt sind. Die Inseln und Küsten, deren Produkte die Seefahrer kennen lernen sollen, liegen außerhalb des Bereiches der staatlichen Bewegungen Europas.

This book is a Year's Journey through France and Part of Spain, 1777. A year's journey through france, and part of spain. As you are kind enough to say, that those letters which I wrote from this kingdom, nine or ten years ago, were of some use to you, in the little tour you made through France soon after, and as they have been considered in some degree to be so to many other persons, (since their publication) who were unacquainted with the manners and customs of the French nation, I shall endeavour to bring together, in this second correspondence with you, not only some of the former hints I gave you, but such other remarks as a longer acquaintance with the country, and a more extensive tour, may furnish me with; but before I proceed any further, let me remind you, of one great fault I was then guilty of; for though your partiality to me might induce you to overlook it, the public did not, I mean that of writing when my temper was disturbed, either by cross incidents I met with upon the road, or disagreeable news which often followed me from my own country into this.

This was at sunset; and we had been so driven to sea by a contrary wind on the preceding day, that neither the coast of England nor France were visible. From Dover to Calais the voyage is frequently made in four hours. Several observations very forcibly struck me in the course of my passage, one of which I must be allowed to mention. I had repeatedly heard, and now knew from experience, the immense superiority of the English commerce over that of France and every nation in the world; but till I had made this voyage, I never had a sufficient conception of the degree of this superiority. I have no hesitation to say, that for one French vessel there were two hundred English. The English fleet has literally swept the seas of all the ships of their enemies; and a French ship is so rare, as to be noted in a journal across the Atlantic, as a kind of phenomenon.

In Brazil the land that was granted by leagues was to be won by inches from the hordes of savages who succeeded each other in incalculable multitudes, and whose migratory habits rendered it a matter of course for one tribe immediately to occupy the ground from which its predecessors had been driven. Hence the history of the early settlers in Brazil presents none of those splendid and chivalresque pictures that the chronicles of the Corteses, and Pizarros, and Almagros furnish. They are plain, and often pathetic scenes of human life, full of patience, and enterprise, and endurance; but the wickedness that stains even the best of them, is the more disgusting as it is more sordid.

He was naturally eloquent, both in illustrating and proving the reasonableness of his own opinions, and in converting others from their erroneous preconceived notions. Above all, he possessed that steady and persevering resolution, which not only enabled him to vanquish the greatest difficulties, but gave such appearance of success to every thing be promised or undertook, as secured the confidence of all who were under his command. As these extraordinary qualities would have distinguished him in any station of life, so they were remarkably useful in the present enterprise, by which he gained immortal reputation, although he lost his life before its completion.

She saw the pyramids, the Sphinx, the tomb of Queen Hatshepsut, Jerusalem, and Cairo. The journey took a little over ten months. She kept a journal during the trip and each night and wrote in pencil about her adventure during the day. In 1846 her journal was published in Austria. It became one of the most popular travel books in Europe.

Stedmans boek is een indringende beschrijving van Suriname in de tijd van de slavernij. Het boek is geillustreerd met tientallen gravures, gemaakt naar schetsen van Stedman.  .

The wind was favorable until the eighth, when we were opposed by a wind south-southwest and west-northwest, driving us as far as latitude 42°, without our being able to make a southing, so as to sail straight forward on our course. Accordingly after encountering several heavy winds, and being kept back by bad weather, we nevertheless, through great difficulty and hardship, and by sailing on different tacks, succeeded in arriving within eighty leagues of the Grand Bank, where the fresh fishery is carried on. Here we encountered ice thirty or forty fathoms high, or more, which led us to consider what course we ought to take, fearing that we might fall in with more during the night, or that the wind changing would drive us on to it. We also concluded that this would not be the last, since we had set out from France too early in the season. We sailed accordingly during that day with short sail, as near the wind as we could. When night came, the fog arose so thick and obscure that we could scarcely see the ship's length.
