Notorious for his sustained critical attacks on Wordsworth and the 'Lakers', Francis Jeffrey is revealed in these tour diaries as a man thoroughly at one with many aspects of the Romantic era, and in particular with the first generation's love of highland scenery, and the second generation's fascination with continental travel.
The work contains trancriptions from manuscript of Jeffrey's Highland Tour of 1800, and his Continental Tour of 1823. The Editor has contributed an Introduction on 'Francis Jeffrey and Travel: Landscape, Taste and Aesthetics', and an account of Jeffrey's Continental Itinerary.
