Summer Holidays in Brittany

Nature volume 13, page 465 | Download Citation



MR. HUTCHINSON is well known, among other things, for his researches among Peruvian antiquities, and therefore, to his tour in Brittany he brought a trained observation. He has managed to write a very pleasant book on rather a worn subject, a book which is likely to give its readers a desire to follow the author's example. Indeed it might form a very useful guide-book for the district traversed by Mr. Hutchinson, and would have the advantage of being much more pleasant reading than guide-books generally are. Mr. Hutchinson evidently made good use of his time when in Brittany, and to those who have not read much on the subject the book will furnish a great deal of information on the nature of the country, the characteristics and manners and customs of the people, the antiquities, historic and prehistoric, the ecclesiastical and political history, and many other interesting points. A very good map and some fair illustrations add to the value of the book.
