Early Guides for Travellers in Britain brings together a wide range of travel guides.
In the two hundred years before the motor-car became an affordable method of leisure travel, visiting other parts of the British Isles was dependent on private carriages or public transport. Through the eyes of the various authors, the countryside is revealed as it would be seen by the local inhabitants.
Each guide provides a wealth of topographical detail, not easily available elsewhere, of interest to family, local and social historians who are building up a picture of how a particular group of people would have seen their surrounding circumstances.
