Description
The wellspring of this book is the remarkable 17th century figure Thomas Coryate, unofficial jester to the court of King James I, associate of John Donne, Ben Jonson, and Inigo Jones, and holder of the curious honor of being one of the first Englishmen to travel simply for the experience of travel itself. Daniel Allen, who has traveled extensively in Europe and Asia and has worked on three continents, set out on a bicycle in 2004 to retrace the path of Coryate's final journey from Turkey to northern India—a trek where everything along the route has changed and yet somehow remained the same. Handsomely made and wonderfully portable, this compact and literate travelogue is as much about the journey as the destination.
