In 1876, at the age of just 26, Furnivall embarked on an extraordinary travel adventure that took him across much of Britain. He visited some of the most remote and undiscovered parts of the country, and made invaluable contributions to the fields of history, linguistics, and philology.

This book tells the story of Furnivall's remarkable journey, and features a wealth of original photographs and illustrations. It is an excellent introduction to one of the most fascinating and under-appreciated Victorian scholars and adventurers.; 8vo; 302 pages.
