This new work is a significant addition to the list of travel bibliographies, being the most comprehensive to date dealing with women travellers. Many of the book's descriptions encapsulate both the content and the flavor of the book, and the biographical entries illuminate the life of the writer. It is a biographical bibliography of more than 1,500 books in English, written by more than 1,100 women travellers, published between 1837 and 1910. The listing is alphabetical - by the surname of the writer at the time of her first publication. A geographical index of regions visited by the writers makes it easy for those with a specialist area interest to cross refer to individual entries. An index of pseudonyms used by the writers also is included. This is a book which will prove a useful tool for book sellers. At the same time, it is an invaluable reference for those in academic institutions interested in the areas of Victorian & Edwardian writers, women studies, and travel writing - bringing together, as it does, for the first time a comprehensive listing of writers and their works.
