1687 Travel Account of Switzerland and Italy by G. Burnet
Some Letters Containing an Account of What Seemed Most Remarkable In Travelling Through Switzerland, Italy, Some Parts of Germany, etc., written by G. Burnet, D.D. to the Honorable R.B. This is the second edition corrected and altered in some places by the author to which is added an Appendix containing some remarks on Switzerland and Italy, writ by a Person of Quality and communicated to the author. Together with a Table of the Contents of Each Letter. Printed in Rotterdam for Abraham Acher, Bookseller, 1687, 316 pages.
This is the original book and not a modern reprint. The front cover is all but detached. Full leather binding, some former owner names within, rear endpaper is missing, foxing (brown spots) within but the pages are very readable, a piece of newspaper clipping in the book has left a dark mark.
Very interesting account of the author's travels and critical comments of his observations - political, social and religious.
