CommentsT. Adolphus Trollope’s first book, a travel narrative set in the provinces of France, from the Loire to the Dordogne, through Touraine, Anjou, and La Vendée, covering much the same route that Elizabeth Strutt wrote about in 1833. The text was heavily edited by the author’s mother, Frances Trollope, for which both the author and editor were ridiculed by some critics.
