John Murray’s ‘Handbooks for Travellers’ series was begun by John Murray in 1836, after his own experience of travelling on the continent. Murray’s Handbooks were conceived at a time when improved transport links were making foreign travel increasingly easy and popular. His innovative guides responded to a need for detailed practical guides for new middle-class travellers. This entertainment guide is a spin off from the Murrays travelling books. Scarce.
