A Journey into the Levant as It Once Was

John & Renata Fox

By the Early Modern Age,?travel?had?gained a new?meaning – it was now a?way?to knowledge. For?the?British?gentleman who travelled abroad to?learn about?other?people, a journey into the Levant to see the Turks became a must. But that?journey?was?no?picnic. London was months away from Constantinople, the Levant was rife with plague, and it was a very expensive undertaking.?Still the British gentleman went.

Based on the travelogues of thirteen British gentlemen, this book takes you?on a journey into the Levant as it once was.?As you make your way from London to Constantinople, you?will?visit cities, towns and?islands,?meet?people and?learn about?ways of life, and you?will?get to know a British gentleman for whom travel was the “sweetest of all the pleasures in the world”. The?book tells a story about?a?past when?a journey?into the?Levant?was?an experience to last a lifetime. It is a cultural account of a world long lost.
