He seems to have chosen the title and persona of the Uncommercial Traveller as a result... More > of a speech he gave on the 22 December 1859 to the Commercial Travellers' School London in his role as honorary chairman and treasurer. The persona sits well with a writer who liked to travel, not only as a tourist, but also to research and report what he found; visiting Europe, America and giving book readings throughout Britain. He does not seem content to rest late in his career when he had attained wealth and comfort and continued travelling locally, walking the streets of London in the mould of the flâneur, a 'gentleman stroller of city streets'. He often suffered from insomnia and his night-time wanderings gave him an insight into some of the hidden aspects of Victorian London, details of which he also incorporated into his novels.< Less

Good Old Mac: Henry Everett McNeil, 1862—1929 By David Haden
Paperback: $19.77
Prints in 3-5 business days
The 'ground zero' of modern horror was the notorious slum of Hell's Kitchen, New York, in the 1920s. There H.P. Lovecraft and his circle met regularly, in the flat of the simple old bachelor who had... More > brought them together. This curious boy-man was Henry Everett McNeil, and he was Lovecraft's good friend. In his walking tours of New York's secret slums, McNeil opened new doors in Lovecraft's macabre imagination and may have been the model for "He". This is the first book on McNeil and his career.

The book also tries to answer the riddle of why McNeil was apparently so poor, when he was a best-selling author and a reviewer of books for The New York Times. The essay is accompanied by a selection of McNeil's works.< Less
A Poet's Pilgrimage By W H Davies

More > stare as long as sheep or cows." In A Poet’s Pilgrimage, published in 1918, he tries to take time to stand and stare on his walking tour from Carmarthen to London.

Between 1893 and 1899 Davies spent years drifting, begging and taking on seasonal work in America - this time is chronicled in his The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp.< Less
