Burton Holmes Travelogues

Product description

Burton Holmes, the father of the Travelogue All the delights of travel for those who stay at home. In a time before air travel or radio, on the brink of a revolution in photography and film making, Burton Holmes (1870-1958) set upon a lifelong journey to bring the world home. From the grand boulevards of Paris to China's Great Wall, from the first modern Olympics in Athens to the 1906 eruption of Mount Vesuvius, Holmes delighted in finding "the beautiful way around the world" and made a career of sharing his stories, photographs, and films with audiences across America.
