Romania Revisited: On the Trail of English Travellers, 1602-1941

Alan Ogden

The story of the journeys made by English travellers to Romania between 1602 and 1941. The author, Alan Ogden, interweaves the impressions of previous generations into an account of his own journeys made in the summer and winter of 1998. Although the chapters are arranged to follow his own route, he integrates earlier writings into his narrative by linking them to towns and places. The bibliography provides a detailed inventory of published English travel writing in Romania and Ogden has selected those passages which throw light on the attitudes of earlier travellers and highlight some of their more amusing antics. His sources are divided into ‘The Gentlemen’ and ‘The Ladies’ and are supported by a general English language bibliography. The book is illustrated with the author’s own photographs, based on the work of Karl Hielscher in 1933, and with maps also drawn by the author.
