About this Item

BAYARD, Ferdinand-M[arie]. Voyage dans l'Interieur des Etats-Unis, a Bath, Winchester, dans la Vallee de Shenandoha [sic], etc. etc. etc. Pendant l'Ete de 1791. Paris: Cocheris, 1797. 1st ed. xvi,336 pp. Contemporary calf-backed boards. Some rubbing of boards, else a very good copy. HOWES B- 255. Haynes 1251. Monaghan, French Travellers in the U.S., 151, France Views America, 203. Scarce in this condition. "[Bayard's] purposes in traveling to Bath were to save his wife and child the perils of a summer in Baltimore, and to observe Americans in village and country rather than in towns in constant intercourse with Europe. "He traveled through Elliott's Mill, Fredericktown, Middletown, and Hagerstown, and his long residence at Bath, Berkeley County, Virginia (now West Virginia), was punctuated by an excursion to Winchester and its environs, thirty-nine miles distant. "Bayard's account affords a sympathetic, sentimental, leisurely picture of society at a forgotten watering place seldom visited by travelers. His social and intellectual acceptability and the length of his stay set his book apart from the customary tourist-guide gazetteer. His stated intention of delineating manners and customs is fulfilled. There are observations on diet, women, the rearing of children, religion, and funerals, to make an incomplete list." --Clark II, 77. Bookseller Inventory # 54110
