Detailed Product Description
New York, Oxford University Press, 1990, 1st edition. 344 pp, with 14 illustrations. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

This book contains bibliographical details of almost 1000 books which have been produced by some 350 women travel writers over a period of 16 centuries. It reveals a varied and largely unknown body of literature, and also provides accounts of the many journeys which they cover. It begins in 381 AD, when the Abbess Etheria set out from "the other end of the earth" to Jerusalem, goes on to look at medieval missionaries, and also covers modern travellers such as women mountaineers.
