Book Description

  • Following the success of earlier facsimile collections (Lake District Tours: A Collection of Travel Writings and Guide Books in the Romantic Era and Picturesque Wales: Facsimile Reprints of ''Pennant's Tours'' and ''Wales Illustrated''), this is the third Edition Synapse collection of travel writing and guidebooks written during the period of ‘picturesque tours’.
  • Scotland became a popular destination for eighteenth-century writers. Samuel Johnson’s A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland (1775) and William Gilpin’s Observations on the Highlands (1789) were hugely influential, and the trend continued throughout the nineteenth century with the success of Wordsworth’s poems and Walter Scott’s novels. During this period a variety of tourist guides and other travel books were published.
  • This Edition Synapse collection reprints six publications, including a folio volume of Walter Scott’s Provincial Antiquities and Picturesque Scenery of Scotland with Descriptive Illustrations. Together with many pictures and maps, they represent vividly how Scotland was perceived by English people of the period. It will be welcomed as an important resource for those studying English Literature and also for historians of the period.
