This is a first edition book of a husband and wife team who travel around the world. It is a record of a long tour. Largely follows certain well-defined routes of travel from America to Japan, China, India, Egypt, Palestine, and back to America again, via Europe. In their journeys, the authors were personally attended by kind friends and acquaintances of every country they visited.
Both the husband and wife authors travelled directly to communities and not touristy places, they saw unique cultures and communities worldwide without being judgemental or prejudiced. Their observations and illustrations were truly amazing even to this day. This book Our Journey Around The World in a way transports the reader back to the 19th century.
