Jarvis addresses a significant gap in modern scholarship on travel writing: its contemporary reception. Drawing on formal reviews, journals, letters, autobiographies, commonplace books and marginalia, Jarvis analyses the impact made by travel books on North America during an era of transatlantic strife. Attentive to the role of the periodical press, his book is also the first serious exploration of private reading experiences of travel literature in the Romantic period.
