The Complete English Traveller

or A New Survey of England and Wales Containing a Full Account of Whatever is Curious and Entertaining

by

Robert Sanders & Nathaniel Spencer

London: J Cook at Shakespear's Head (1771). Maps, illus, pp. 719.

Transcribed by Michael Steer

Robert Sanders was a native of Scotland, born in, or near, Breadalbane, about 1727. He was by business a comb-maker; but not being successful in trade, and having some talents, some education, and a good memory, he became a hackney writer, and in that capacity produced some works that have been relished by the "lower class of readers". When he came to London is uncertain; but, having travelled over most of the northern parts of the United Kingdom, he compiled this quaint, rather whimsical travel book from his own survey and information gleaned from books. His compatriot, Nathaniel Spencer contributed the section on Scotland. This rare book was produced from a digital copy held by the University of Michigan Library that can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. Those on which copyright has expired are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
