Geographies of the Romantic North : Science, Antiquarianism, and Travel, 1790-1830 Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Cultural and Intellectual History series

Description

This book examines British scientific and antiquarian travels in the "North," circa 1790-1830.

British perceptions, representations and imaginings of the North are considered part of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century processes of British self-fashioning as a Northern nation, and key in unifying the expanding North Atlantic empire.
