Though the good city of Paris appears to be less in fashion than in other days with those representatives of our race-not always, perhaps, acknowledged as the soundest and stiffest-curious of foreign opportunity and addicted to foreign sojourns, it probably none the less remains true that such frequentations of France as may be said still to flourish among us have as much as ever the wondrous capital, and the wondrous capital alone, for their object.

This is a family travel book. When a good old family, of good character, falls on evil days and is eventually submerged in the classes beneath, we know that the aspects which please, the good features and expression, will often persist for long generations. Now this submerging process is perpetually going on all over the land and so it has been for centuries. We notice from year to year the rise from the ranks of numberless men to the highest positions, who are our leaders and legislators, owners of great estates who found great families and receive titles. But we do not notice the corresponding decline and final disappearance of those who were highly placed, since this is a more gradual process and has nothing sensational about it. Yet the two processes are equally great and far- reaching in their effects, and are like those two of Elaboration and Degeneration which go on side by side for ever in nature, in the animal world; and like darkness and light and heat and cold in the physical world.

Leest verrassend makkelijk weg voor een boek uit 1875. Abbott maakt zich af en toe schuldig aan het ophemelen van zijn onderwerp (onverschrokken, visionair, waardig etc etc) maar sluit ook zijn ogen niet voor de wreedheden van de Europese 'ontdekkers' tegenover de oorspronkelijke bewoners van de Caraïben. Velt uiteindelijk het wat obligate oordeel dat we Columbus 'in zijn tijdgeest' en in het licht van de toen heersende opvattingen moeten zien.

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.

Maxwell was sent to Mesopotamia to make sketches for the Imperial War Museum. He saw a good deal of the country, going up the Euphrates as far as Hit. He records his impressions in a few pleasant but superficial chapters. Like most visitors, he found that Baghdad and Basra, on close inspection, have none of the glamour which surrounds them in the Arabian Nights. Yet Mr. Maxwell's sketches, especially those which are reproduced in colour, show that the artist can find a great deal of beauty even in Mesopotamia. The ruins of Babylon at sunrise and in moonlight, dawn at Amara, Sheikh Saad with the broad blue river in the foreground and the snow- tipped blue Persian hills in the distance, Hit's walla reddened by the sunset glow, and Baghdad streets on a clear starlit night are among the many attractive themes that Mr. Maxwell found in the course of his tour. His pictures are distinctly interesting.

The European Press was at the time of our departure largely interested in this question, which fact induced the proprietors of the Daily Express of London, the Journal of Paris, and the New York World to contribute towards the expenses of the expedition. Another reason is one with which I fancy most Englishmen will readily sympathise—viz. , the feat had never before been performed, and my first attempt to accomplish it in 1896 (with New York as the starting-point) had failed half way on the Siberian shores of Bering Straits.

Liverpool is most worthy to be seen and known, and no one who looks up from the bacon and eggs of his first hotel breakfast after landing, and finds himself confronted by the coal-smoked Greek architecture of St. George's Hall, can deny that it is of a singularly noble presence. The city has moments of failing in the promise of this classic edifice, but every now and then it reverts to it, and reminds the traveller that he is in a great modern metropolis of commerce by many other noble edifices.

The earliest traces of navigation and commerce are necessarily involved in much obscurity, and are, besides, few and faint. It is impossible to assign to them any clear and definite chronology; and they are, with a few exceptions, utterly uncircumstantial. Nevertheless, in a work like this, they ought not to be passed over without some notice; but the notice we shall bestow upon them will not be that either of the chronologist or antiquarian, but of a more popular, appropriate, and useful description. The intercourse of one nation with another first took place in that part of the world to which a knowledge of the original habitation of mankind, and of the advantages for sea and land commerce which that habitation enjoyed, would naturally lead us to assign it.

Our vessel was manned with a real American crew, that is, a crew, of which scarcely two men are of the same nation—which conveys a tolerably correct notion of the population of the United States. The crew consisted of one Russian, one German, one Italian, one Scotchman, one Newfoundlander, one Irishman, two Englishmen, two New Englanders, and two Negros—the cook and steward. The seamen of America are better paid, and better protected, than those of any other nation; but work harder, and must understand their duty well. Indeed if we had not had a good crew, our ship, being old, might have suffered severely.

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.

The book is Noto an unexplored corner of Japan. From you my dear Basil the confidant of my hopes toward Noto I know I may look for sympathy now that my advances have met with such happy issue however incomplete be my account. And so I ask you to be my best man in the matter before the world. It is best too for a journey into the interior to take with you your own bedding sheets that is and blankets. The only consolation lay in the memory of what travel over the Musashi plain used to be before trains hurried one or otherwise into the heart of the land. We were now come more than half-way from sea to sea, and we were still in the thick of Europeanization.

This is a travel book. We were nearly as bad on the Manitoba, the friendly steward warning most of us to secure our seats without delay, the cabin-walls being gradually lined with people on either side, each behind a chair. One of the 'boys' strode ostentatiously down the long saloon, ringing a great hand-bell, which summoned a mixed multitude pell-mell to the scene of action, only to retreat in disappointment at finding the field already occupied. It was amusing to watch the different expressions on the faces down the lines while waiting for breakfast.

I joined the second battalion rifle brigade, (then the ninety-fifth,) at Hythe-Barracks, in the spring of 1809, and, in a month after, we proceeded to form a part of the expedition to Holland, under the Earl of Chatham. With the usual Quixotic feelings of a youngster, I remember how very desirous I was, on the march to Deal, to impress the minds of the natives with a suitable notion of the magnitude of my importance, by carrying a donkey-load of pistols in my belt, and screwing my naturally placid countenance up to a pitch of ferocity beyond what it was calculated to bear.

I speak here of my opinion as to the ultimate success of secession and the folly of the war, repudiating any concurrence of my own in the ignoble but natural sentiment alluded to in the last paragraph. I certainly did think that the Northern States, if wise, would have let the Southern States go. I had blamed Buchanan as a traitor for allowing the germ of secession to make any growth; and as I thought him a traitor then, so do I think him a traitor now. But I had also blamed Lincoln, or rather the government of which Mr. Lincoln in this matter is no more than the exponent, for his efforts to avoid that which is inevitable.

Geneva is situated upon the confines of France, Switzerland, and Sardinia, at the outlet of the Lake of Geneva, which is perhaps the most beautiful, and certainly the most celebrated, lake in Switzerland. It is shaped like a crescent, -that is, like the new moon, or rather like the moon after it is about four or five days old. The lower end of the lake - that is, the end where Geneva is situated - lies in a comparatively open country, though vast ranges of lofty mountains, some of them covered with perpetual snow, are to be seen in the distance all around. All the country near, however, at this end of the lake, is gently undulating, and it is extremely fertile and beautiful.

This was Great Britian BEFORE the horrific wars when life in the villages was almost medieval. Reading between the lines, you are able to garner the pulse of the people (antipathy toward the lords who own most of the land) keeping them in almost poverty. I was amazed at the number of cathedrals they visited (30) and many, many castle and abbey ruins.

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.

This is travel story book. I doubted whether I could possibly breathe in a narrow state-room. In certain localities I have found myself liable to attacks of asthma, and, although I had not had one for years, I felt sure that I could not escape it if I tried to sleep in a state-room. I did not escape it, and I am glad to tell my story about it, because it excuses some of my involuntary social shortcomings, and enables me to thank collectively all those kind members of the profession who trained all the artillery of the pharmacopoeia upon my troublesome enemy, from bicarbonate of soda and Vichy water to arsenic and dynamite. One costly contrivance, sent me by the Reverend Mr. Haweis, whom I have never duly thanked for it, looked more like an angelic trump for me to blow in a better world than what I believe it is, an inhaling tube intended to prolong my mortal respiration.

Après avoir parcouru les principales îles placées dans l'Océan atlantique vis-à-vis le continent africain, et dont les Européens se sont emparés à la même époque où ils commencèrent à reconnaître la côte occidentale de cette partie du monde, nous allons, en retournant un peu sur nos pas, suivre avec les voyageurs cette même côte, depuis le désert de Sahara jusqu'à Sierra-Leone, où commence la Guinée proprement dite. Avant de passer par le détroit de Gibraltar dans l'Océan qui baigne la côte occidentale d'Afrique, on trouve, sur les bords de la Méditerranée, les contrées connues autrefois des anciens, et qui forment ce que les modernes ont appelé Barbarie; Alger et son domaine, qui est l'ancienne Numidie; Tunis, qu'on croit être Carthage; Tripoli, la grande Syrte, Barca, tout ce qui composait les possessions romaines jusqu'au mont Atlas. Au-delà du détroit est le royaume de Fez, l'empire de Maroc, autrefois la Mauritanie Tingitane; Dara, Tafilet, pays gouvernés jadis par Syphax et par Bocchus, mais sous la dépendance ou la protection des Romains, qui avaient poussé leurs conquêtes jusqu'au désert. À l'orient, les Romains possédaient encore l'Égypte et la Nubie, et connaissaient quelques ports de la mer Arabique. La grande région qu'ils appelaient Éthiopie, et que nous nommons Abyssinie, ne leur était connue que de nom. Elle ne l'est guère davantage aux modernes, qui pourtant en ont fréquenté quelques ports, comme Adel, Zeyla, Souakem, etc. , mais n'ont que peu pénétré dans l'intérieur des terres. À l'égard de la côte orientale d'Afrique, que nous avons vu découvrir par les Portugais après qu'ils eurent doublé le cap des Tourmentes, et qui contient les royaumes de Mosambique, de Quiloa, de Monbassa, de Mélinde, tout ce qu'on appelle le Zanguébar et la côte d'Ajan, les commerçans de Tyr et de Phénicie y descendaient par la voie beaucoup plus courte de la mer Rouge, dans des temps dont il nous reste bien peu de traces. Nous avons vu que, par la même voie, les Arabes ou Maures de la Mecque, ceux de Barbarie, et plus récemment les Turcs, y venaient commercer quand les Portugais y arrivèrent. Mais, quand ces mêmes Portugais, quand les Anglais et les Français abordèrent en Guinée, ils n'y trouvèrent que des Nègres et des serpens.

Captain Bonneville is of French parentage. His father was a worthy old emigrant, who came to this country many years since, and took up his abode in New York. He is represented as a man not much calculated for the sordid struggle of a money-making world, but possessed of a happy temperament, a festivity of imagination, and a simplicity of heart, that made him proof against its rubs and trials. He was an excellent scholar; well acquainted with Latin and Greek, and fond of the modern classics. His book was his elysium; once immersed in the pages of Voltaire, Corneille, or Racine, or of his favorite English author, Shakespeare, he forgot the world and all its concerns. Often would he be seen in summer weather, seated under one of the trees on the Battery, or the portico of St. Paul's church in Broadway, his bald head uncovered, his hat lying by his side, his eyes riveted to the page of his book, and his whole soul so engaged, as to lose all consciousness of the passing throng or the passing hour.

In Following the Equator, an account of that travel published in 1897, the author unmasks and criticizes racism, imperialism and missionary zeal in observations woven into the narrative with classical Twain wit. Of particular interest, historically, are Twain's references to Cecil Rhodes in Australia and South Africa, the in-depth description of "Thugs" and "Thuggee" in India and the Boer War period and diamonds in South Africa.

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.

This is an eyewitness account of an extended visit to Morocco in 1805 and 1806 by an English doctor. It contains a comprehensive account of life among the inhabitants, as well as the history and all other aspects of the country. There are a number of amusing anecdotes, such as the one about the Jew who was thrown to a hungry lion, but the lion refused to eat him. The reader may be a bit confused about Marrakesh being called Morocco, but it is from this that the country derived its name.

Goethes Italienische Reise gehört zu den Klassikern der Literatur. Es ist eines der wichtigsten Werke in der Reiseliteratur des 19.Jahrhunderts. Er schildert seine Reiseroute nach und in Italien. Er stellt landschaftliche, kulturelle und ästhetische Betrachtungen an, wobei er in keinem Augenblich versäumt sein unglaubliches universalwissen einzustreuen. Recht gut zu lesende Reiseskizzen, deren Bearbeitung nicht zu überlesen sind, da sie dadurch ein Ganzes bilden

Es hat kaum ein großartigeres Unternehmen mehr das Interesse der gebildeten Welt in Anspruch genommen, als der Durchstich des Isthmus von Suez, eine Unternehmung, wie sie eben nur der vor nichts zurückschreckende Geist des 19. Jahrhunderts erdenken konnte. Und keine Arbeit ist mehr besprochen und beschrieben worden, als gerade dieser Kanal, Stimmen haben sich dafür und dagegen erhoben; Enthusiasten wollten den Kanal in ein paar Jahren vollenden, unterschätzten die Schwierigkeiten, setzten die Kosten zu gering an; ihre Gegner sprachen von unüberwindlichen Hindernissen, vom Niveauunterschiede der beiden zu verbindenden Meere, von nicht zu besiegenden Sandstürmen der Wüste, vom Mangel an Geld und endlich, falls der Kanal zu Stande käme, von den zu großen Kosten, welche die Rheder für ihre durchgehenden Fahrzeuge zu entrichten haben würden.

If you leave the mouth of the Thames, or the white chalk cliffs at Dover, and sail over the water just where the English Channel meets the North Sea, you will in about three or four hours see before you a long expanse of yellow sand, and rising behind it a low ridge of sandhills, which look in the distance like a range of baby mountains. These sandhills are called "dunes". Here and there at intervals you will see a number of little towns, each town standing by itself on the shore, and separated from its neighbour by a row of dunes and a stretch of sand.

They now stand within the old chamber of the Representative House, and the pity is that, if elevated to such a position as that indicated, they can never be really seen. There are models of them all at West Point, and some of them I have seen at other places in marble. The Historical Society, at New York, has one or two of them. In and about the front of the Capitol there are other efforts of sculpture--imposing in their size, and assuming, if not affecting, much in the attitudes chosen.

Questo volume, al quale altri faranno seguito, fa parte di un'opera geniale, ma poco nota fra noi, del Gregorovius, «Wanderjahre in Italien», che nel testo tedesco comprende ben cinque volumi, editi dal Brockhaus di Lipsia. Di essa apparvero già in Italia, molto tempo addietro, frammenti, capitoli isolati, ma—non sappiamo veramente per quale motivo—mai se ne tentò l'intera traduzione.

De reizigers, die van Europa naar Formosa gaan, verlaten te Hongkong de groote lijn van Yokohama, om zich in te schepen op een der kleine nipponsche stoombooten, die den dienst van Tamsoeï waarnemen. Vóór de verovering van het eiland door de Japanners in 1895, was alle handel in handen van engelsche maatschappijen, maar langzamerhand is men er, dank zij de subsidies van de regeering, in geslaagd, de britsche vlag bijna geheel te doen verdwijnen uit de havens van Formosa. De Daijin Maroe, waar ik passage op neem, is een uitstekend schip, dat flink zee bouwt en zeer geriefelijk is ingericht. Nadat we de chineesche kust een eind hebben gevolgd met oponthoud van korten duur te Swatow en te Amoy, steken we de straat over met het altijd onstuimige water, en zijn na drie dagen reizens tegenover de haven Tamsoeï. Hier moeten we ankeren in afwachting van het oogenblik, dat de vloed ons zal vergunnen, een bank over te komen, waar bij hoog water nog maar 13 voet water staat.
