Description

This curious book proved very popular in its day, perhaps because a traveller following its prescriptions could be sure of returning with much new knowledge and a broader understanding of the world. That is, if he survived the cool reactions of the many locals whom he would have to pester in order to elicit the detailed information Berchtold recommends collecting.
