Paul Cobb Methuen despite the unpredictable European postal service endeavoured to send home detailed accounts of his journey. It is these letters, so full of humour and candid perceptions, which form the basis of this book. Whilst vividly documenting life in eighteenth-century Europe, they also manage to give an insight into the social habits of the Englishman abroad. For these reasons they have been left virtually intact,,, their diversity and style making them as evocative today as they were nearly 240 years ago.
