Jonathan Keates’s passion for collecting historic guidebooks has resulted in a beguiling work of cultural archaeology, which explores the experience of travel for the British before the First World War. Unlike Lucy Honeychurch in E.M.Forster’s A Room with a View, he revels in Baedeker, Murray and other Victorian examples, taking us on a poignant, funny and often revealing tour through this undiscovered genre.
