From the introduction: “This charming waterways travelogue is one of the earliest accounts of pleasure cruising on canals. When it first appeared in 1868 (at a price of 2s 6d (12½p), its very unusualness attracted considerable attention, one review in The Chromolithograph describing it as ‘a pleasantly written narrative ... a novel description of a voyage’. Over the century that has elapsed since Mr and Mrs Dashwood made their journey, this book has acquired a reputation as one of the most sought-after canal books of the 1800s.”
