Travel Writing 1700-1830

An Anthology

Edited by Elizabeth A. Bohls and Ian Duncan

Oxford World's Classics

  • The first comprehensive anthology of writing covering travel in Britain, Europe and Asia Minor, Africa, the Caribbean, North America and the Pacific in the 'long eighteenth century' (1680s-1830s).
  • The anthology features writing by famous authors such as Daniel Defoe, Ann Radcliffe, Mary Wollstonecraft as well as lesser known and obscure ones; famous voyages and expeditions (by Captain Cook, Mungo Park), and lesser known ones.
  • A wide variety of different kinds of travellers and travel-writing is represented: natural historians, tourists, explorers, slaves (Olaudah Equiano), and a good representation of women travellers.
  • A lively introduction by Elizabeth Bohls surveys the contexts of early modern travel writing, and informative headnotes cover the different geographical regions, periods, genres and individual authors.
  • Texts are taken from the earliest published versions, modernized where necessary.
