A meticulously prepared edition of a travel journal kept by John Carter Brown (1797 - 1874) when he was in Europe for eighteen months as a young man. On this grand tour, Brown, who twenty years later founded the John Carter Brown Library, visited England, Scotland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and above all, Italy. The book provides a rare glimpse of an educated young American's impressions of the manners and the artistic and architectural wonders of the Old World in the early nineteenth century. Donald Rohr's fifty-page introduction to the work and his detailed annotation enhance understanding of the text without pedantry. Printed by Meridian Printing and bound by Acme Bookbinding. Designed and set in type by Gilbert Design Associates, Providence, Rhode Island.
