The Royal Tour, a facsimile of a journal kept by Petty Officer Harry Price of the voyage of H.M.S. Ophir, which took the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York on a voyage around the British Empire in 1901. This was interesting to read of the journey from a "flatfoot" as his experience was quite different from that of the Duke and Duchess. He illustrated his journal with some fine sketches, mostly of the various ships they encountered, so if you are a big fan of early steamships, this would be great for you. For some very odd reason, I have a fascination with ocean voyages. I love reading about them, and this is no exception, although I can't say there was much suspense or plot and I expect many would find it tedious. I enjoyed reading about the daily doings of the sailors, their impressions of strange and faraway places and peoples and the sentiments about their empire and royalty.

A well illustrated personal diary of the Royal Tour. Fantastic illustrations (paintings) by a very talented artist. Cracking Book - Not just a "Goodread" - a "Great Read!" :-) A fantastic glimpse into the past and a different way of life!
