By: Withey, Lynne

Price: $19.95

Publisher: New York:, William Morrow & Co.,: 1997.<br>

Seller ID: 009079

The European and, later, American desire for spending long periods of time in pleasure travel, and journeying over long distances in that pursuit, reached its zenith in the years between the mid-eighteenth century and the beginning of World War I.
