<p>Published in four volumes, this travelogue by English author Daniel Defoe provides a vivid portrait of daily life in Great Britain in the early 1700s. Defoe divided his journeys up into "circuits," and visited many of the major and minor cities and towns of England, Scotland and Wales. He also devotes considerable space to descriptions of early 18th-century travel methods and conditions. Published at a time when there were few reference works on England, this work remains a valuable resource on Great Britain in the years before the Industrial Revolution.</p>
