Key Features:

  • Unfold the pages to find a captivating account of Lady Brassey and her family’s voyage around the globe aboard a 157-foot steam-powered yacht. Starting on July 1, 1876, they sailed from England, exploring South America, the South Pacific, Asia, and the Middle East, before returning home on May 26, 1877. Through her eyes, readers get a glimpse of exotic locales and the day-to-day life on the ocean.
  • Annie Brassey (1839–1887) was an English adventurer, writer, and advocate for women's suffrage and improved working conditions. Balancing motherhood with five children alongside her marriage to British railroad heir and Member of Parliament Thomas Brassey, her life was a blend of advocacy and adventure. Tragically, her explorations were cut short when she succumbed to malaria at 48 during a sailing adventure, yet her legacy lives on, notably through her grandchild, Idina Sackville, who was spotlighted in Frances Osborne's acclaimed biography, "The Bolter."
  • This book stands as a testament to the communal love for exploration and knowledge, serving as a splendid addition to any vintage book collection.
  • Whether it’s a themed book reading or a thoughtful gift to a vintage book enthusiast, this volume is bound to charm its audience.
  • The ornate green hardcover not only encapsulates a fascinating narrative but also exudes a vintage charm that is bound to captivate any book lover.
