Two journeys to Jerusalem: Containing First, A Strange and True Account of the Travels of Two English Pilgrims
De Beer Eb 1685 R
London: Printed for Nath Crouch
Although attribution of this journey to Jerusalem is given to Henry Timberlake (H.T.), it was probably compiled by Nathaniel Crouch (1632?-1725?), a prolific author who used various nom de plumes such as Robert, or Richard Burton (R.B). His ‘travel tales’ were popular, gaining the phrase ‘Burton’s Books’. The two English pilgrims were Henry Timberlake (1570-1625) and John Burrell, who actually travelled to Jerusalem. This is the second ‘H.T’ edition, which contains other ‘tales’ by the initialled ‘T.B.’ and ‘S.B.’, that is, Crouch. The author uses a time-honoured sales pitch on the title-page: ‘And Beautified with Pictures.'
