This may be the closest I will ever get to the Grand Tour enjoyed by my mother's mother.
The book itself is lovely, nice copy, too (with Mylar cover) and seems well written. Purchasing this way - Amazon- provides spectacular savings in price.

Very interesting history of the rise of travel from a pastime of the wealthy to mass travel. Coordinates with a history of railroads and steamships. Well done.
