    Abstract : "The nineteenth-century travel writer cannibalised other modes of literary, geographical and scientific writing, while simultaneously forging experimental and dynamic forms in the struggle to represent the contingent realities of the road. This collection reveals the variety of literary forms and visual media through which travel records were conveyed in the period, bringing together a group of leading researchers from a range of disciplines to explore the relationship between travel writing, visual representation and formal innovation across the long nineteenth century. The first part of the volume combines literary scholarship with art-historical research and explores points of intersection between the print, visual and material culture of travel. The second section investigates how existing literary and historical narratives affected the literary representation of popular sites, and how the material realities of transport impacted upon the formal techniques through which these experiences were represented"
