"The unlimited variety of conventions, opinions, institutions, and customs in which man can be observed on the stage of his earthly existence and undertakings presents not only an interesting but also an instructive spectacle"
[Johann Adam Bergk, 1769 - 1834, private scholar, translator and philosopher]

Fictional or documentary travel writing is both instructive and entertaining. Our collection offers non-fictional, informative travel handbooks and guides, scientific travelogues, and fictional and fantastical travel and adventure novels, many with decorative illustrations.
