Travels, Explorations and Empires, 1770-1835 free pdf The Romantic Period saw the advance of the massive British imperial expansion that was to make it dominant for most of the 19th century. There was a corresponding expansion in travel writings, which, highly popular in their own time, seemed to bring exotic realms within the grasp of the reading public and were a source for ethnographic and cultural information about other societies. This collection attempts to reflect the diveristy of travel literature which often reveals something of the cultural and gender differences of the travellers, as well as fuelling debates on colonialism, natural history, anthropology and slavery. Some of the works have inspired such classic literature as Coleridge's "Ancient Mariner", Byron's "Don Juan" and Shelley's "The Witch of Atlas". This set of volumes cover the literature about Africa, India, the Carribbean, South Seas and Australasia.
