From the cover: “On Tuesday 5 June 1770 Dr Charles Burney, then aged thirty-four, embarked at Dover for the Continent and arrived back in London on Monday 24 December, having undertaken a notable journey in search of books, music and musicians. Constantly attending concerts, visiting churches, museums, libraries and art galleries Burney observed and noted in illuminating detail everything that he saw and did, everyone that he met and conversed with. He was thus able to provide an invaluable record of the state of music, and the arts generally, in France and Italy at that time.”
