Lady Annie Brassey (1839-1887) possess a keen eye for human interest and narrative detail that propelled her to international fame as a travel writer. This book presents a daily diary of two voyages to Constantinople aboard her family yacht in the mid 1870s. Here, the modern reader may glimpse the natural wonders, cultural distinctions, and political circumstances of such countries as Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Greece, and Turkey during that time period. Readers will also find an excellent example of the nineteenth-century European fascination with the "Orient."
