Exploration & Travel

In the travel department, we focus on the great explorers from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century, such as Cook, Bligh, Livingstone, Stanley, Scott, and Shackleton, whose heroic expeditions and voyages have laid the foundations for our present-day knowledge of geography, ethnography, and the natural world.

Contact Head of Department Julian MacKenzie or travel & guidebook specialist Lucinda Boyle for more information about rare & collectable Travel Books at Shapero Rare Books.
