In 1956 and 1957 Arnold Toynbee and his wife made a journey around the world. These informal sketches, chiefly in relatively out-of-the-way places, of what he saw, felt and recalled (a vast stock of historical lore) are both perceptive and informative. Indeed, one could wish that at least some of these travels had preceded the writing of his "A Study of History."
