Phoenix: The Art of Travel (1872): Or, Shifts and Contrivances Available in Wild Countries

Few Victorian travelers set off without this indispensable book in their baggage. Conceived during a voyage to Southwestern Africa in the 1850s, it eventually ran into eight editions; this version was the last to incorporate new material. Quaint, practical, and VERY politically incorrect, this wonderful time capsule reveals how Tibetans keep warm, how to build a snow house, and a multitude of tried, tested, and now forgotten tips.
