This chapter focuses on American and British travel writers in Europe during the period from 1825 to 1875. It examines the special considerations and interpretive efforts incumbent upon writing tourists/travellers and describes two main observations that recur frequently in their accounts. These include the observations that the Continental tour seemed to be surrounded and regulated by a variety of guiding texts and that by writing one's own travel record one had to work within the boundaries mapped out by those prior texts.

Keywords:   travel writers, American travel writers, British travel writers, Europe, tourists, travellers, Continental tour
