Description
It was the summer of 1814: Napoleon had just been forced to abdicate, while for Britain, the age of tourism had begun. Over the next hundred years, laden with kettles, carpets, desks, rubber baths, and a generous portion of prejudice, note Contemporary Review cohorts Richard Mullen and James Munson, the British set out en masse to discover Europe (until the Great War forced them home again). Mullen and Munson examine just what it was about the smell of the continent that so enticed and repelled the Victorians abroad, many of whom remained secure in the knowledge that they were vastly superior to all they encountered, and their country the envy of the world.

"A jolly, jam-packed, rapid-fire tour of its subject. Just what holiday reading should be all about."Economist (London)

"Striking and entertaining ... [this] teeming diorama astonishes and sometimes shocks the reader with the vitality of the insular travellers. It is impossible not to admire them."Sunday Telegraph (London)
