George Ticknor's Travels in Spain free pdf Excerpt from George Ticknor's Travels in Spain The following inedited excerpts from George Ticknor's manuscript journal describe his tour in Spain during the spring and summer of 1818. They should prove of interest not only for the travel pictures they present, but also for the biographical material they offer concerning one of the most eminent Americans of the early nineteenth century. Ticknor and his friend, Edward Everett, were the pioneer American students at a German university, and the first cisatlantic exponents of German scientific method. Ticknor and Jefferson were the first advocates of a free elective system of studies. Ticknor, Everett, and Cogswell organized the first American libraries conducted on scholarly lines. And Ticknor is famous not only as the father of Spanish studies in America, but of all serious modern language work as well. It is far more difficult to estimate Ticknor's influence upon American literature. That it was important, however, is proved by the facts that but for Ticknor, Longfellow might never have received his appointment to Harvard, and Prescott's thoughts certainly never would have turned to Spain.
