An excellent travel book for bona fide travellers, but definitely not for the fireside stay-at-homes. Specific information as to methods of travel, clothes, weather, food, costs, means of locomotion, hotels, warnings, practical working vocabulary. Then a geographical travel directory -- where to go -- what to see -- enough historical background -- a cross between Clara Laughlin and Baedecker method. Breezily written and interestingly informative. More data than the average traveler could need, but that need not be a handicap. Maps, charts and photographs. No conflict with Moats, Barretto or Brenner, but a working guidebook.
