Travels Near and Far

Produced to complement an exhibition curated by Katie Sambrook at King‘s College London, this website on voyages and travels from the 16th to the 20th century is illustrated with images from rare books and manuscripts in the Foyle Special Collections Library. This material includes sections on grand tours, as well as the Arctic regions and the Indian sub-continent. Many of these colour images display native costumes as well as views and landscapes.
