Comments

The best known of many works by Richard Brathwait (1587-1673), a picaresque - and in places bawdy - travel narrative-satire in verse about Barnaby's inebriated tour on the highways and byways of England and what he encounters. It was first published in 1638 as Barnabae Itinerarium, or, Barnabee's Journal, under the pseudonym Corymbaeus; there were numerous editions following this second edition, including one edited by Joseph Haslewood in 1820.
