Villanova University Falvey Memorial Library: Rambles, Travels, and Maps

Screenshot
Rambles, Travels, and Maps, a digitial collection from Villanova University, is introduced as follows: "Here reside narratives of wanderings real or imaginary, travel guides, charts, and maps." On the "imaginary" side, visitors can read Jean Jacques Barthelemy's Travels of Anacharsis the younger in Greece, a late eighteenth century novel that portrays a fictional travelogue of ancient Greece. Most of this collection, however features real travel guides and narratives, such as John Ogilby's 1712 The Traveller's Guide, or a most exact description of the roads of England. This collection also includes a varieity of maps and atlases dating from 1594 through 1939. As a whole, Rambles, Travels, and Maps provides a glimpse into how people have explored, imagined, and made sense of place throughout centuries.
