It wasn't just the finishing trip performed by wealthy American men and women, but also the activity of numerous other Americans of many different races, classes, and occupations: the journey outside the United States to destinations in Britain, Italy, France, Germany and other countries throughout the world. Included are familiar authors and famous works by such authors as Mark Twain and Henry James, as well as the less well-known travel books that serve as a companion to America's memory. American Travellers Abroad is a bibliography of travel literature published before 1900. Upon publication of the first edition in 1969, it showcased the importance of travel upon the notion of "national identity," and the impact of travel literature upon writing in America. This current edition is a significant expansion of that important first edition, and represents over 2000 titles, many discovered in the years since its original publication. The book is organized alphabetically by author, and provides full bibliographic information about each title. The annotations summarize each title concisely and note significant features. An author index is organized by occupation and by the country visited. This unique tool assists the researcher, teacher, or historian who needs to find and become familiar with the wide breadth of travel literature, whose importance has only begun to gain academic and popular attention in recent years. This updated classic will be a valuable addition to all libraries.
