WOMEN TRAVELERS, 1692-1941

WOMEN TRAVELERS, 1692-1941

Women Travelers: Fact, Fiction and Verse. A selection of books by women travelers, 1692 to 1941, to places as far flung as India, Africa, Brazil, Hawaii, North America, the Middle East and . . . Wales, Scotland, the English coast, and over the Thames and St. James Park in a hot air balloon.  After reading a manuscript of Mary Wortley Montagu’s Letters in 1724, Mary Astell wrote that women were better travelers than men. And indeed, particularly before 1815, women were more enlightened, perceptive and entertaining travelers than men, and the books in our catalogue Women Travelers & Travel Writers, 1692-1941, prove her point.
