Description

An account by Mary and Anne Wilson of their travels in Europe from January to October 1847 with their brother John. Mary kept a detailed diary of everything they did and saw. She describes the local museums, ruins and other sights of each place they visit. She also notes the local habits, diet and costumes of the people they encounter and gives her opinion of them. Her sister Anne was an artist and kept a constant record of their travels. The book is illustrated with reproductions of both her sketches and watercolours. The narrative gives an insight into the social history not only of the areas they visited but of the attitudes of these Victorian women abroad.show more
