Described as `a spirited, sometimes quirky, narrative of the ups and downs of simple travel in the Greek islands.. in the late nineteenth century', this book is a personal account of two tours made by J Theodore Bent and his wife around the Greek islands between 1882 and 1884. A self-taught archaeologist and historian, Bent's account is full of historical information and description of both people and places. This new edition edited by Gerald Brisch includes additional material.
