Description

Covers France, Italy and Germany. Detailed chapters on Paris, Florence, Paris, Naples and Pompei. This guide was originally published in 1824 and went to several editions and translations before being enlarged and republished as Travels in Europe (1832). “The varoious editions enlarge the geographical scope of their predecessors, and brought up to date the very detailed practical advice on accommodation, expenses, food, and itineraries she gave to travellers.” (DNB).

This appears to be a “pirate” Italian edition of Starke’s “indispensable” guide.
