A Visit to the Holy Land, Egypt, and Italy

Ida Laura PFEIFFER (1797 - 1858), translated by Henry William DULCKEN (1832 - 1894)

Ida Pfeiffer travelled alone in an era when women didn't travel. She went first on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, then went on to Egypt and Italy. Understanding the difficulties a woman would face travelling alone and on a budget, she made a will before she left. Go she did, however; and upon her return she wrote this book. She used the proceeds to finance her next trip - six months in Iceland.
