Product Description

Henry James's travel writings are at once literary masterpieces, unsurpassed guidebooks, and penetrating reflections on the international themes familiar from his fiction. This volume and its companion, Great Britain and America, present them complete for the first time. Observant, imaginative, rich with literary associations and historical echoes, they show James as a great traveler and one of the greatest of all travel writers. From Provence and the Loire Valley, to Rome and Capri, Tuscany and Umbria, he visits all the places still on the traveler's itinerary, capturing radiant impressions of French countryside, the Norman coast, Florentine masterpieces, Venetian color and light. Sixteen essays most previously uncollected, on such varied places as Switzerland, Belgium, and the Pyrenees, include a remarkable account of the American volunteer ambulance corps in Europe during World War I. Joseph Pennell's exquisite drawings are reproduced from the original editions.
