Description
In an early example of modern travel writing, Thomas Gray produced a colorful journal of his 1769 tour of the English Lakes, delighting in all he saw. A few years later Joseph Farington followed in Gray's footsteps and painted a series of watercolor views along the way. Presented together, Gray's journal and Farington's art produce a remarkable portrait of the Lake District in halcyon days.

"This elegant book brings together the words and pictures of the two men in a celebration of one of the most spectacularly beautiful regions of Britain. In addition, the author has photographed Farington's views as they appear today, to show how in many cases very little has changed over the centuries. Anyone familiar with this wonderful part of the country will be delighted by this quietly charming book."Good Book Guide
