of British Travel Writing, 1780–1840:
The European Tour, 1814–1818 (excluding Britain and Ireland)
In 1826, Mary Shelley recalled the Summer
of 1814 as ‘incarnate romance’, when ‘a
new generation’ of youthful travellers with ‘time
and money at command’, yet heedless of ‘dirty
packets and wretched inns’, ‘poured, in one
vast stream, across the Pas de Calais into France’.
Though this first rush was interrupted by Napoleon’s
return from Elba, Waterloo signalled the start of an even
more frenzied exodus of patriot tourists, eager to comb
the battlefield for souvenirs or survey the spoils of
empire in the French capital, now under allied control.
It is estimated that some 15,512 British tourists and
residents were present in Paris alone during 1815, 
while, at home, accounts began appearing in print. By
1817, the Edinburgh Review commented:
The restoration of peace has, as might
have been foreseen, produced a vast number of Books of Travels.
When our countrymen are pouring in swarms over every part
of the Continent, carrying with them their sons fresh from
College, and their daughters full of romance, and eager for
compositionwhen countries which, two or three years
ago, were wholly locked up from our inspection, or only accessible
to persons of a more than ordinarily adventurous spirit, now
lie as invitingly open to the sober citizen and his worthy
family, as Margate or Brighton, it could not but follow that
the press should groan with many a Tourmuch Traveland
sundry masses of Letters that never paid postage. [4
John Scott, editor of The Champion Magazine,
whose A Visit to Paris in 1814: Being a Review of the Moral,
Political, Intellectual and Social Condition of the French Capital
(1815) quickly sold out five editions, argued that the English
were distinguished by a ‘travelling propensity’,
giving mobile expression to ‘a freedom and custom, as
well as a power to think’. 
Like other self-congratulatory travel books published in those
early years, Scott’s celebrates the English tourist’s
observing eye, penetrating, sifting, connecting, and calling
attention to itself and its own hermeneutic virtuosity (in pointed
contrast to French theatricality and love of surfaces that Scott
observes everywhere in Paris ). According to Scott, this propensity
explains why ‘the literature of
Britain is richer than that of all other
nations put together, in narratives of those excursions, that
have had no other object but to gratify an elastic spirit […].
Our book-shelves groan with the travels of persons who have
suddenly arisen from almost every class and profession of life,
to go their ways into almost every other country, as well as
into every parish of their own’. 
was so sanguine about this reputed Malthusian increase of travellers
and travel writers, especially those originating from every,
or any ‘class and profession’, not to mention gender.
A reviewer of Mary Shelley and Percy Shelley’s anonymous
account of their continental pedestrian tours, History of
a Six Weeks’ Tour (1817), lamented the demise of class
certainties encoded in the eighteenth-century Grand Tour: ‘The
dashing milords of the last age are now succeeded by
a host of roturiers, who expatriate themselves for the
sake of economy’. 
William Jerdan wrote a cautionary roman-à-clef, aptly
entitled Six Weeks’ in Paris; or, A Cure for the Gallomania
(1817), arguing that the weak-minded and unwary could easily
be drawn into a vortex of vice, tolerated by French moral passivity
yet fatal to English ingenuousness. In Jerdan’s novel
and other travel accounts of Paris, the Palais Royal embodies
this fascinating, yet dissipating attractionEdward Planta’s
otherwise factual tone in his guidebook, A New Picture of
Paris (1814), erupts into admonitions that the Palais Royal
comprised ‘a little world […] every thing to inform
the understanding, and every thing to corrupt the heart’.
The Reverend John Wilson Cunningham’s Cautions to Continental
Travellers (1818) cries out against the travelling vogue
as both a drain on the British economy and, more crucially,
the means of undermining English national character through
the importation of French manners, habits, and scepticism. Cunningham
estimates that upwards of 90,000 men and women had departed
England for continental destinations since 1814, induced by
a vague desire to participate in the ‘advantages of travel’
‘blazoned in volumes of all sizes and complexions […]
traced in ink, sketched in mezzotinto […] painted in
every hue’. 
While Scott celebrated the travelling propensity of all classes,
Cunningham urged that there was cause for alarm; the expanding
profile of travellers ‘most susceptible’ to ‘new
impressions’ include the indolent, the young, females,
and ‘the subordinate classes of society’ (even the
‘middling classes’ might ‘transplant to the
desk and the counting-house’ the ‘empty heads, and
hollow hearts, and sceptical opinions’ that caused the
excesses of the French Revolution). 
The motives for travel, Cunningham argued, were no longer sufficiently
serious, the moral and social consequences potentially devastating.
such anecdotal accounts give the picture of a new continental
travelling vogue, with groaning presses adding ever more titles
to bookshelves already groaning under the weight of British
travel writing. We might plausibly expect a spike in the proportion
of new travel writings that concern continental destinations,
with a disproportionate emphasis on the Low Countries and France
in the aftermath of Waterloo; that author profiles might begin
to reflect the class and gender diversity which so exercised
commentators; or at least that travel writings would register
growing awareness of the exigencies and pressures of mass tourism.
Yet contemporary commentary raises as many questions as it purports
to answer. What proportion of total book production can be accounted
for by travel writing, and of this how much is comprised of
continental tours (as opposed to domestic tours or accounts
of other world regions)? Are there concentrations in or patterns
of regional coverage? How popular is travel writing in comparison
to other literary genres (and what is meant by ‘travel
writing’ in the first place)? What sub-genres are there
(e.g. letters, journals and diaries; agricultural, picturesque,
geological tours) and what were the bestsellers? Who were the
travel writers, and from what specific classes and professions
do they ‘suddenly arise’? Who were the Chatwins
and Rabans of the day, professional travel writers known as
masters of the craft, as opposed to those whose productions
in the genre were opportunistic or ephemeral? How much of an
impact did translation have in the home marketplace; what titles
were selected, by whom, and why? Who were the publishers of
travel writing, and how did their lists respond to social trends
and political events?
scholarship on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century travel writing
has drawn attention to selected travel writers, genres, and
the rhetorical structures of travel writing, while providing
social, cultural, and political contexts for understanding the
production of this work, but criticism remains sketchy on the
bibliographical and statistical evidence that underpins ‘travel
As Nigel Leask has recently observed, ‘the popularity
of travel books during the decades [from 1770 to 1840], although
universally acknowledged, is hard to quantify’. 
Charles L. Batten’s claim that travel writing ‘won
a readership second only to novels by the end of the [eighteenth]
century’, according to Leask, ‘seems credible’,
though Batten’s conclusions are based on compelling anecdotal
evidence (especially the comments of reviewers) and extrapolations
from Paul Kaufman’s report on borrowing figures from the
Bristol Library between 1773 and 1784. 
Published bibliographical evidence is scanty and often inaccurate.
Edward G. Cox’s A Reference Guide to the Literature
of Travel (3 vols, 193549) remains the most comprehensive
travel bibliography available, though one that antedates the
powerful search engines provided by such electronic resources
as the English Short Title Catalogue (ESTC), the Nineteenth-Century
Short Title Catalogue (NSTC), and the OCLS WorldCat
on-line database. Cox gives a fair representation of travel-related
books published in English since the dawn of printing, as well
as many helpful textual annotations, yet his volume on Europe
stops at 1800, his regional categories are often too inclusive
for specialised use, nearly all his entries lack imprint details,
and there are many errors and omissions. The third volume, devoted
solely to Great Britain
, neglects Ireland
altogether. Travel bibliographers since Cox have focused on
special topics, usually regional in focus. The best of these
include Shirley Weber’s Voyages and Travels in Greece,
the Near East and Adjacent Regions Made Previous to the Year
1801 (1953), Richard Sydney Pine-Coffin’s Bibliography
of British and American Travel in Italy to 1860 (1974),
and Peter Bicknell’s The Picturesque Scenery of the
Lake District, 17521855 (1990). While adding pieces
to the jigsaw, these studies cannot possibly provide a cumulative
overview of travel writing trends. More promising is the catalogue
accompanying the Corvey microfiche edition of travel writing,
English Travel Literature in the Micro-Edition of the Fürstlichen
Bibliothek Corvey (1998), though this listing reflects the
strengths and weaknesses of the Corvey Library itself, a collection
concentrated on the 1820s and early 1830s.
of ‘The European Tour, 18141818 (Excluding Britain
and Ireland)’, presented here, offers for the first time
a reasonably complete listing of all travel-related books concerning
the continental tour, published in the British Isles between
1814 and 1818 (the only exceptions being books published in
English abroad, but intended for British tourists). Comprising
180 first editions arranged by publication date, this bibliography
can provide foundations from which to test the anecdotal information
quoted above and can go some way towards answering the supplemental
questions that I have posed. The checklist is drawn from a larger
project now some ten years in development, Bibliography of
British Travel Writing, 17801840 (BBTW), the
identification phase of which is nearing completion. BBTW
aims to provide the first reliable database of all travel books
published in the British Isles during the years 17801840,
with functions for categorising entries by author, chronology,
regional coverage, publisher, and place of publication. BBTW
will also include short biographical notices on each of its
authors, together comprising a complementary database: A
Biographical Dictionary of British Travel Writers and Translators,
17801840. The only other specialist dictionary of
this kind is British Travel Writers, 18371875 (Dictionary
of Literary Biography, vol. 166, 1997), with only three years
of overlap. The aims and scope of the Biographical Dictionary
are also different from the Encyclopedia of Travel and Exploration
(3 vols, 2003), which concentrates on the best-known travellers
and incorporates others into regional articles. Only about one
hundred of the 2,260 authors identified by BBTW so far
are given separate entries in the Encyclopedia, and these
do not always include the period’s most successful writers.
is notoriously difficult to define: Mary Campbell calls it ‘a
genre composed of other genres’, while Jan Borm has more
recently concluded that ‘it is not a genre, but a collective
term for a variety of texts both predominantly fictional and
non-fictional whose main theme is travel’. 
Drawing on Hans Robert Jauss’s ideas about ‘dominant
aspects’ of mixed genres, Borm goes on to define the travel
book as ‘any narrative characterized by a non-fiction
dominant that relates (almost always) in the first person a
journey or journeys that the reader supposes to have taken place
in reality while assuming or presupposing that author, narrator
and principal character are but one or identical’. 
While the majority of books in the present checklist, and in
BBTW as a whole, conform to and confirm this definition,
a great many titles have been included in which actual travel
is presented in the third person (e.g. guidebooks and traveller’s
aids) or organised in non-narrative forms (e.g. essays and viewbooks).
I have also focused on non-fictional travel prose, excluding
fictional works (e.g. Byron’s Childe Harold’s
Pilgrimage) and non-fictional travel verse (e.g. Moore’s
Italy), though works like these form integral components
for our understanding of the period’s culture of travel
and were sometimes used as travel guides themselves. For the
purposes of selecting titles for inspection, then, I have used
the following criteria (listed in order of importance):
First-hand accounts of actual travels
or residences abroad, including translations, new editions
of older material, campaign journals, and shipwreck, castaway,
and captivity narratives.
Travellers’ aids, including itineraries,
guidebooks, ‘companions’, road manuals, regional
descriptions, and atlases (when accompanied by letterpress).
Collections, anthologies, digests,
abridgements, and histories of travel and exploration,
including travel compendiums designed for children, and
biographies of travellers.
View books (collections of engravings
and etchings accompanied by letterpress).
‘Virtual’ tour books accompanying
panoramas and exhibitions.
The Identification/Location phase of BBTW
involves the identification and location of all possible titles,
printings, and editions, ascertaining as much information
as possible through secondary sources, principally the ESTC
and NSTC, but supplemented by existing bibliographies, library
databases, listings and reviews in periodicals, circulating
library catalogues, and stack searches (thirteen titles derived
from these sources but not in the NSTC appear in the checklist
below). To date, the BBTW database contains 2,260 author
entries, 3,742 title entries (i.e. first editions), and 5,811
text entries (i.e. inclusive of all editions and reprints).
The next phase of the project will be to inspect each title
entry in order to transcribe accurately the title page and
imprint, and gather information on physical description and
general content, particularly regional coverage. Non-extant
entries will be corroborated against other secondary sources,
such as circulating library catalogues, to prevent the inclusion
of ghost titles.
checklist suggests a number of intriguing statistics when
placed in the context of total travel book production in the
years 181318 (see Table 1). As might be expected from
contemporary commentary, there is a spike in book production
for all regions (including extra-European travels) from a
total of 61 in 1813 to 88 in 1814. Thereafter, total production
continues evenly until 181718 when there is a second
rise from 92 to 137. Surprisingly, the figure for books on
continental travel (excluding
Ireland ) actually declines slightly
between 1814 and 1817 with only a modest recovery in 1818.
During the same period titles concerning Britain and Ireland
slowly but steadily increase their market share, and the spike
in overall production registered in 1818 is largely accounted
for by the dramatic increase in domestic and Irish titles
from 37 in 1817 to 64 in 1818, and by a sharp increase of
titles on extra-European regions from 24 to 39 (compare this
to the very modest recovery of continental travels from 31
to 34, still substantially below the figures of 42 and 40
for 1814 and 1815 respectively). Thus, there is remarkable
consistency in the period covered by the checklist in terms
of the market share of travel writings when taken as a whole
and when taken as a sub-unit measure of European travel writing
. Taken separately, however, the decreasing market share of
continental travel books belies the impression among reviewers
and travel writers that the opposite was the case. The reasons
for this counter-intuitive result require more investigation.
Perhaps there is some truth to one reviewer’s claim
in 1821 that travellers ‘sent forth […] with
the design of recording their adventures’ rarely ‘deviated
from the most frequented routes’: ‘We hardly,
indeed, can recollect above two or three who have written
upon any thing beyond the limits of the Grand Tour’.
With travel writers (and readers) interested most in the remnants
of the Grand Tour, we might expect a glut of writings on the
most fashionable destinations, but correspondingly less emphasis
on peripheral regions to take up the slack. As for the steady
increase after 1814 of domestic and Irish travel books, we
might surmise that increasing travel was partly a result of
post-war economic reorganisation, or perhaps that foreign
travel spurred the taste for travel closer to home, either
from those who could not afford more distant destinations
or those who returned from their experiences abroad reinvigorated
with the urge to journey.

some extent, the first hypothesis is borne out by patterns of
regional coverage in the census period, where titles conform
more closely to expectations (see Table 2). The height of interest
occurs in 1814 when 22 titles appeared and the figures then
taper off only slightly with 19 titles treating France (especially
Paris ) in 1817. Reader interest evidently reached saturation
levels, for in 1818 there is a sudden drop to only six titles,
giving credence to Mary Shelley’s recollection that ‘when
France palled on our travelled appetites, which always crave
for something new, Italy came into vogue’.

The figures show that Italy
was already somewhat in vogue, with 1818
duplicating levels of coverage achieved in 1815 (though the
majority of the titles under the previous year, 1814, concern
Elba , the site of Napoleon’s first exile). However, interest
soon reached the levels of France
in 181415, peaking at 22 in 1820.
The trend thereafter was downwards, but British readers remained
more intrigued by Italy than France with nearly twice as many
new titles appearing yearly throughout the 1820s. Among the
other regions covered by travel books during 181418, only
show a modest but steady increase, with the former peaking in
1817, the latter in 1818. Because of the popularity of the Rhine
tour, the German states also put in a good showing, with the
anomalous exception of 1816. The reinvigoration of the Rhine
tour after 1816 owes a great deal to Byron’s Rhine stanzas
in Childe Harold, Canto III, published in November 1816,
a touchstone quoted or alluded to regularly by subsequent travel
writers including the Shelleys (Checklist no. 17/23) and Charles
Dodd (no. 18/10). 
One can also see how the Shelleys’ History
of a Six Weeks Tour through a Part of France, Switzerland, Germany,
and Holland: With Letters Descriptive of a Sail round the Lake
of Geneva, and of the Glaciers of Chamouni (1817) was on
the face of it a shrewd venture, capitalising on interest generated
by Byron and the regions mentioned on the title page. But Percy
Shelley began negotiating with his publisher, Hookham, late
in the year. When the History appeared in November 1817,
interest in France
and Holland had already peaked, and the Shelleys must have hoped
(in vain) that the Swiss letters would carry the day. 
The vast majority of titles in
the checklist are what I call personal witness narratives (75%),
including letters, journals, and ‘notes’ on tours
actually conducted by the named or implied author. The second
most sizable category is traveller’s aids, such as itineraries,
guidebooks, and sailing directions (15%). View books exhibiting
watercolours, engravings, and lithographs form a smaller category,
along with ‘virtual’ tour guides designed to accompany
popular panoramas, such as Henry Aston Barker’s venue
in the Strand (6%). Finally, there are several examples of traveller’s
advice books (2%) and several more intended for children (2%).
A significant subset of personal witness narratives concerns
sites and topics of military and scientific interest. Several
are captivity narratives written by former prisoners of war,
or by civilian detainees who had fallen foul of Napoleon’s
closed border policy during the war years (see Checklist nos
14/12, 14/26, 14/27, 16/10). A number of other titles give eyewitness
accounts of major military campaigns in the Spanish peninsula
(see nos 15/15, 15/22, 16/6, 18/25), Russia (nos 14/23, 15/28),
or elsewhere (no. 15/36), and several more tourists devote extended
coverage to on the spot reconstructions of the battle of Waterloo
(see nos 15/35, 16/1, 16/14, 16/27, 16/29, 17/6). A smaller
subset consists of scientific investigations and research, notably
those of Greek Revivalists such as William Gell, William Martin
Leake, and William Wilkins on sites of Magna Græcia in
itself (see nos 14/24, 14/31, 16/33, 17/3, 17/10, 18/17). Traveller’s
aids include a number of translated imports such as The Post-Roads
in France (1814; 1816) (nos 14/7, 16/7), Reichard’s
An Itinerary of France
(1816) (no. 16/26), and Mariano Vasi’s A New Picture
of Rome (1818) (no. 18/33). The important Paris-based English
language publisher, Galignani, also brought out the immensely
popular and much copied guidebook, Picture of Paris (1814;
6th edn, 1818), available to travellers en route from the famous
reading room on rue Vivienne (see no. 14/16, and nos 18/14,
18/15, 1816 for other Galignani guides). 
Popular homegrown versions included Edward Planta’s A
New Picture of Paris (1814; 10th edn, 1818) (no. 14/29),
Edmund Boyce’s The Belgian Traveller (1815) (no.
15/14), and Henry Coxe’s Picture of Italy (1815)
The checklist includes 18 translations
from the French, six from the German, one from Italian, and
one from the Russian, a total of 26 (14%). This would suggest
that the vaunted Englishness of the ‘travel propensity’
did not stop writers from imitating foreign models or readers
from being interested in foreigners’ accounts. Several
translations concern earlier matter (nos 14/22, 16/19, 16/31,
17/18), notably Louis-Sebastien Mercier’s Paris
(1818) (no. 17/18), which draws on his Tableau de Paris
(1781), the prototype in fact for most of the British guidebooks
to Paris trading under the name of Pictures or New
Pictures (e.g. nos 14/16, 14/29, 14/38). The taste for past
pictures is also attested to by the captivity and campaign literature
already mentioned, as well as various comparative studies such
as William Shepherd’s Paris, in Eighteen Hundred and
Two, and Eighteen Hundred and Fourteen (1814) (no. 14/34)
and Stephen Weston’s Slight Sketch of Paris (1814)
(no. 14/41), detailing the changes between Paris during the
Peace of Amiens and Paris after the war. Sir Richard Colt Hoare
operated a small private industry by publishing limited editions
of Recollections, treating his European tours of the
1780s and 1790s (nos 15/25, 17/12, 17/13, 18/20). Even Hoare’s
Hints to Travellers in Italy (1815) (no. 15/25), published
by John Murray, seems rooted in the past, giving outdated advice
on passports and posting routes, and recommending pre-war maps
and guides. Cornelius Cayley’s Tour throughHolland
, Flanders, and Part of France
(1815) (no. 15/17) represents a special
case, included in the checklist despite the possibility of its
being based on a first edition of 1777. Whether the ‘Cornelius
Cayley Jun.’ of the title page reworked his father’s
text after conducting a tour of his own or whether the volume
is a reissue cannot be determined in advance of inspection,
but even if the latter, the ‘new edition’ would
have had considerable novelty value with a new generation of
It is worth reconsidering at
this point Batten’s impression that travel writing ‘won
a readership second only to novels’ at the end of the
eighteenth century. Figures for novel production, now available
through the CEIR database, British Fiction, 18001829,
would suggest that by the early nineteenth century this
trend was reversed: between 1814 and 1818 an average of 58.4
new novels per year were published, 
compared with 98.8 travel titles (36 tiles on the continental
tour alone). Among the novels listed in the British Fiction
database, several in this period imitate the travel genre, particularly
satires and comic novels like The Observant Pedestrian Mounted;
or, A Donkey Tour to Brighton (1815) (DBF no: 1815A011),
Modern Manners; or, A Season at Harrowgate (1817) (DBF
no: 1817A006), Eaton Stannard Barrett’s Six Weeks at
Longs (1817) (DBF no: 1817A011), and William Jerdan’s
Six Weeks in Paris (1817) (DBF no: 1817A035). Jerdan’s
novel imitates travel description so well that one suspects
that it is based on an actual journey or incorporates contemporaneous
travel accounts into its texture, and the extent to which novels
become de facto travel narratives requires further research.
Madam de Staël’s Corrine, ou Italie (1807)
is perhaps the most well-known example of such a cross-over
genre, one read by countless British travellers on the spot
in Rome: John Chetwode Eustace, author of the popular Classical
Tour through Italy (3rd edn, 1815), remarked that Corinne
was ‘the best guide or rather companion which the traveller
can take with him’ as de Staël inspires the reader
‘with that lofty temper of mind, without which we can
neither discover nor relish the great and beautiful in art or
in nature’. 
There also must be other novels like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
(1818) (DBF no: 1818A057), which incorporates travel letters
and journals from her 1814 and 1816 continental tours into various
scenes (e.g. Victor’s encounter with the monster on the
Mer de Glace; or Victor and Clerval’s Rhine journey).
Mary Shelley was also not alone in writing both novels and travel
books. Other travel writers in the checklist who wrote in both
genres during the same period include John William Cunningham
(Checklist no. 18/9; DBF no: 1816A024), Lady Morgan (no. 17/20;
DBF no: 1814A045), Walter Scott (no. 16/30; DBF no: 1814A054),
and Ann Yossy (no. 15/40; DBF no: 1818A062).
Like Morgan, Shelley, and Yossy,
the majority of women writing about the continental tour were
professional writers, with several earning renown through travel
writing in particular. Helen Maria Williams’s Narrative
of the Events Which Have Taken Place in France (1815) (no.
15/39) was only her latest instalment of travel writing: her
first travel book, Letters written in France (1790),
was expanded into seven volumes from 1793 to 1796; she published
a tour of Switzerland in 1796 that included comparisons with
Paris in the 1798 edition; and in 181429, she produced
her magisterial seven volume translation of Friedrich Heinrich
Alexander von Humboldt’s Personal Narrative of Travels
to the Equinoctial Regions of the New Continent. Though
travel writing dominated her career, Williams was also a notable
novelist, poet, and journalist. Mary Anne Schimmelpenninck turned
to travel writing to earn her livelihood, publishing a compilation,
Narrative of a Tour to La Grande Chartreuse and Alet, by
Dom. Claude Lancelot, in 1813. After touring the continent
in 1815, she published her second and last travel book, Narrative
of the Demolition of the Monastery of Port Royal des Champs
(1816) (no. 16/28), but continued writing books in fields such
as aesthetics and theology. Charlotte Anne Eaton published only
two travel books, but earned a substantial reputation through
them. Her first, Narrative of a Residence in
Belgium during the Campaign of 1815
(1817) (no. 17/6) gives one of the best accounts of the horrors
of Waterloo ; her second, Rome in the Nineteenth Century
(3 vols, 1819) reached a fourth edition in 1826. She also published
a semi-fictional novel, Continental Adventures (3 vols,
1826), based on her own experiences.
Nevertheless, women writers make
up only a fraction of the total number of published travel writers,
both in the checklist and in BBTW as a wholeonly
10 checklist entries (5.5%) include women writers, though a
few others may be masked by anonymous titles. To date, BBTW
has identified 130 women travel writers, with the vast majority
of these publishing after 1800. These figures are perhaps surprising
given the amount of recent criticism focusing on women’s
travel writing in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 
Yet as late entrants into the marketplace of travel writing,
women tend to be extra-conscious of literary fashions, even
as they buck trends, test the limits of genre, and create fresh
For example, Elisabeth Bohls holds that eighteenth-century women’s
travel writing includes an emphasis on detail that challenges
the aesthetic disinterestedness of ‘mainstream’
masculine travel writing and aesthetic theory; more recently,
Jane Stabler has argued that women travel writers on Italy display
‘the most inventive literary use of the picturesque […]
[before] the huge expansion of continental travel in the Victorian
The case of Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley’s History
of a Six Weeks’ Tour is again particularly interesting
in this context. The History is not only one of the relatively
few travel books with a female author, but it is one of the
much fewer books written by a female-male collaborative team.
We know from the source journals and letters that this collaboration
was complex. The Shelleys shared a travel journal and Mary Shelley
borrowed freely from Shelley’s entries when revising the
History for publication. While the 1814 journal portion
of the History remains predominantly (though not unproblematically)
Mary Shelley’s ‘work’, the book as a whole
(which includes several of Shelley’s long letters from
Switzerland and his poem ‘Mont Blanc’) is a much
more balanced affair. For us, the textual evidence challenges
Romantic notions of originality while testing the limits of
gendered identity; for Romantic period readers the collaboration
would have been almost unprecedented. 
The Shelleys’ travel book also helps set something of
a record. Before 1817, I can find no year covered by BBTW
in which more than three new travel books by women writers appeared.
In 1817, the History of a Six Weeks’ Tour was one
of seven (with five represented on the checklist). 1818 and
1819 were relatively fallow years for women, but a record 12
new titles appear in 1820, after which women begin to achieve
a more regular presence in the travel marketplace.
The examples of Williams, Morgan,
and Eaton suggest that women were statistically more likely
than men to capture the public mood and become popular (and
controversial). Morgan’s France (1817) (no. 17/20)
went through four editions in two years, its radical politics
incurring the tribute of published scorn in the Quarterly
Review and in William Playfair’s France as It Is,
Not Lady Morgan’s France (2 vols, 1819). The polemics
here point to the fact that post-Napoleonic travel accounts,
particularly dealing with France
, were as polarised as periodical journalism.
The most popular liberal voices were those of Morris Birkbeck
and John Scott. Birkbeck’s Notes on a Journey through
France (1814) (no. 14/11) sold out five editions in two
years, arguing from an agriculturalist’s point of view
that Revolutionary and Napoleonic land reform had at last modernised
an economy hopelessly moribund under the ancien régime.
Frustrated at the pace of change at home, Birkbeck a few years
later emigrated to America, publishing two more popular travel
books that appealed to Keats, Shelley, Peacock, and many others
(including George and Georgiana Keats, who heeded Birkbeck’s
call for emigrants to set up liberal communities on the American
John Scott’s A Visit to Paris in 1814 (1815; 5th
edn, 1816) (no. 15/34) and its sequel, Paris Revisited
(1816; 3rd edn, 1816) (no. 16/29), together sold eight editions
in two years, making Scott one of the best known commentators
on post-Napoleonic Paris (Cunningham quotes liberally from Scott
in Cautions to Continental Travellers). Scott is better
known today for his friendships with Leigh Hunt and Wordsworth,
as well as his editorship of the London Magazine from
182021. It was Scott who championed the
and paid for this with his life in a duel with Jonathan Christie,
John Lockhart’s London agent for Blackwood’s
Magazine. But Scott is one of the period’s best and
most lively travel writers and reviewers, and deserves far more
attention as a major figure in his own right. The same might
be said for John Chetwode Eustace, whose A Letter from Paris
(1814) (no. 14/15) upheld the anti-gallic end of the political
spectrum with a vengeance, selling out a colossal ten editions
in barely a year: the Blackwood’s contributor George
Croly paid Eustace the tribute of virtually versifying A
Letter in his Paris in 1815: A Poem (1817). 
Eustace began publishing his travel writing late in life (on
the advice of veteran traveller, Edward Daniel Clarke), but
his success was unparalleled. His A Tour through Italy
(1813), narrowly excluded from the checklist, became the vade
mecum of Italian travel under the more renowned title of subsequent
editions, A Classical Tour through Italy, a text that
accompanied Byron and Shelley during their Italian sojourns.
Finally, though not exactly popular, Stephen Weston deserves
honourable mention as one of the most prolific travel writers
on the checklist. A Slight Sketch of Paris (1814) (no.
14/41) and Two Sketches of France, Belgium, and Spa (1817)
(no. 17/31) are but two of twelve travel books spanning a travel
writing career that began in 1776 and ended in 1824. Weston
was in the unique position of having journeyed to Paris during
the Revolutionary ferment of 179192, the Peace of Amiens
in 1802, the period after Napoleon’s first abdication
in 1814, and the post-Waterloo era in 1816and to have
written books on each of these visits.
Weston began his travelling career
as a tutor or ‘bear leader’, as did Eustace, but
both might be classified as religious professionals. Weston
held the rectory of Little Hempston, Devon , from 1784 to 1823.
Eustace trained as a Roman Catholic priest and was at one time
responsible for the Midlands district under John Milner. Other
writers on the checklist were non-conformists. William Shepherd
(no. 14/33) practised as a Unitarian minister; Cornelius Cayley
(no. 15/17) was a Methodist preacher; John Evans (no. 17/8)
was a General Baptist minister; John Paterson and Ebenezer Henderson
(no. 17/22) were Congregationalists who worked as missionaries
for the British and Foreign Bible Society; Thomas Raffles (no.
18/28) was also a Congregationalist minister. Together with
their Church of England counterparts these religious professionals
make up the second largest profile of travel writers on the
checklist (16 writers; accounting for 10% of total titles).
The first largest group consists of military professionals,
including sea captains (17; 10.6%), though the heightened interest
at home in Napoleonic affairs may have inflated these figures
at this period. In the third ranking are professional writers,
including novelists, poets, and miscellaneous writers, a category
dominated by women, as we have seen (9; 5%). Artists, including
engravers and lithographers come next (7; 5%), followed by:
leisured gentry (5; 7%); booksellers and publishers (4; 4%);
diplomats and government agents (4; 2%); journalists and editors
(2; 1.6%); architects (2; 1%); cartographers, geographers, and
hydrographers (2; 1%); legal professionals (2; 1%); physicians
(2; 1%); scholars (2; 1%). Other individuals might be described
as archaeologist (Gell, nos 17/9, 17/10, 1817); actuary (Mitchell,
no. 16/25); astronomer (Beaufoy, no. 17/2); clerk (Horne, no.
15/28); East India Company Serviceman (Barnes, no. 15/10); manufacturer
(Wansey, no. 14/39); and merchant (Anon., no. 15/2). The vast
majority of named and anonymous authors must remain anonymous
until further research in later phases of BBTW can shed
new light on them. What is clear is that the majority of the
identified writers come from the professional classes and most
are male, hardly resembling the profile of travellers that seemed
so threatening to Cunningham in his Cautions.
The statistical data and summaries
compiled here will have greater relevance once the identification
phase of the Bibliography of British Travel Writing, 17801840
has been completed, and further information beyond the census
dates and the regional limits of the following checklist can
be collated. Nevertheless, the checklist should begin to answer
some of those bibliographical problems that have hitherto eluded
travel scholars, and I hope it will spur further investigations
on sadly neglected travel writers, books, and genres. At very
least, the checklist will provide fresh evidence that Romantic
period anecdote must be treated with caution and tested against

Dodd published his Rhine account with Byron’s publisher,
John Murray, who no doubt calculated that the travel writing
and the noble Lord’s verse would promote each other. Murray
and his son, John Murray III, took the obvious next step by
copiously quoting (and ruthlessly editing) Byron in a series
of guidebooks, beginning with A Handbook for Travellers on
the Continent (1836). See Buzard, Beaten Track, pp.

The only collaboration before the Shelleys’ History
is John Parker and Mary Ann Parker’s A Voyage round
the World, in the Gorgon Man of War. Performed and Written by
Captain John Parker, His Widow, for the Advantage of a Numerous
Family (1795). On the checklist, I have followed the NSTC
in listing John Henry Manners and Elizabeth Manners as joint
authors of Journal of a Trip to Paris by the Duke and Duchess
of Rutland, July 1814 (1814) (no. 14/25), though my own
inspection of this text would suggest that it is most likely
the work of John Henry Manners, with Elizabeth Manners supplying
drawings for coloured plates accompanying the text. The only
other text that I can mention in this category is Giovanni Baptista
