Travel and Talk, Vol. 1 of 2: My Hundred Thousand Miles of Travel Through America, Australia, Tasmania, Canada, New Zealand, Ceylon, and the Paradises of the Pacific (Classic Reprint)
I have no preface to offer - no explanation to make.
These volumes speak for themselves: those who are interested in me and my travels and observations will read them, and the others can leave them alone.
Writers are sometimes vain enough to imagine that what amuses them must necessarily amuse other people: I am under no such delusion, and am therefore quite prepared to receive with resignation and meekness the neglect of the public and the strictures of the Press, or vice versâ:.
I have yielded, perhaps rashly, to the representations of my publishers, and admitted two portraits. For the first I am indebted to the kindness of Mr. Frederick A. Atkins, editor of 'The Young Man,' and for the second to the eminent photographers, Messrs. Russell Sons of Baker Street.
These volumes only include my travels outside Europe from 1885 to 1895.
