Book Description:

This fascinating and original study shows that the English tourist industry is not a peculiarly modern creation. Ian Ousby identifies the four types of tourist attraction - literary shrines, country houses, picturesque ruins, and the natural landscape and the tastes that made them objects of fashionable attention in the eighteenth-century.

From the Back Cover:

“A pioneer work of what we must call “tourist history” written, moreover, with elegance and style.” – John Julius Norwich
