A narrative from the 1820s, this historical account is compiled from the previously unpublished diaries of Krystyn Lach-Szyrma the tutor of the Czartoryski princes on his grand tour of Scotland. A highly educated and insightful man, Lach-Szyrma's interests range from fashionable balls and supper parties to prisons, lunatic asylums and gas works; and as the princes' tutor he has access to the best of Scottish society. The diaries cover Lach-Szyrma's entire tenure in Scotland and provide a vivid picture of Europe near the end of the Enlightenment."
