I was disappointed in Englishmen to some extent. They were not so portly, on the whole, as I supposed; and while there were seen few tall, lean, cadaverous men, as among us, there were less of the aldermanic size than I expected to find.-from "Men and Things"Originally written for the pleasure and edification of his friends, American Daniel Eddy's account of his European tour offers a fascinating perspective on the Continent of the mid- 19th century. Eddy finds an "objectionable practice" in Liverpool, regales us with a rare first-person observation of London's now legendary Crystal Palace Exhibition of 1851, comments on the gin palaces and prisons of England, visits the infamous morgue in Paris, discovers what happens when you miss breakfast in the South of France, explores the catacombs of Naples, and much more. First published in 1852, this delightful book breathes with the adventurous spirit of a born traveler.Also available from Cosimo Classics: Eddy's Walter's Tours in the East: Walter in Jerusalem.American writer and reverend DANIEL C. EDDY served as chaplain of the Senate in 1856. He also wrote a series of books about the fictional Percy family's travels in Europe, including A Visit to Ireland (1859) and Through Scotland and England (1859).
