Arranged chronologically from the 17th century through the present, this exquisite collection of maps traces the evolution of tourism. Part travel guide, part social history, it charts a course across the globe on the first steam voyages, captures the romance of the golden age of train travel, and delves into the very heart of why we journey to new lands. Featuring personal anecdotes, diary extracts, period art, and photographs of intrepid early travelers, Hugh Thomson's collection reveals how people have used maps to navigate their immediate environment and understand their place in the world.
