A portrait of Spanish women in travellers' literature
A collection of travel writing about Spanish women. The patriarchal system established in western societies prevented many of these female travellers from publishing their works in academic journals, but travel writing, despite being considered a lesser literary genre, offered them a means to present rigorous historical and artistic analysis of the places they visited. It has been asserted that the writings on the Orient by some of these women broke the stereotypes produced by male writers and offered an alternative vision. Interspersed with reproductions of antique prints. Limited edition of 200 numbered copies this is nº.107, signed by the author. Size: 6¾" - 9½" 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 273485
