Pressestimmen

Fascinating edition of the travels of two young sprigs of the French aristocracy... a notable contribution to the topographical and social history of Britain on the eve of the French revolution. COUNTRY LIFE (Richard Ollard) A hugely important contribution to our understanding of the agrarian and industrial revolutions in Great Britain in the eighteenth century... Scarfe has been most enterprising in marshalling illustrations of places the two men visited... (his) editing is of such excellence. LITERARY REVIEW (Bevis Hillier) A joy to read... plates and illustrations bring the book to life. HISTORY SCOTLAND Deserves a wide readership. ARCHIVES The most satisfying book I read in 2002... Connoisseurs of 18th-century travel books will be enraptured. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH A charming and intriguing picture of late eighteenth-century Scotland, made more accessible by a knowledgeable and careful editor. EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY SCOTLAND
