Travel and Tourism in Britain, 1700–1914
The British led the way in holidaymaking. This four-volume primary resource collection brings together a diverse range of texts on the various forms of transport used by tourists, the destinations they visited, the role of entertainments and accommodation and how these affected the way that tourism evolved over two centuries.
"The collection is a labor of love -- one senses and appreciates throughout the enthusiasm and dedication brought to the task." - Robin Jarvis, University of the West of England
