This volume of Lady Bulldog’s diaries was discovered by accident in the British Library by editor Sandi Toksvig. The partially restored account of the Grand Tour undertaken by this intrepid Victorian traveler and her maid Jinks in 1880 includes a selection of Jinks’ original sketches. Of particular interest are the episodes involving Lady Burton’s initiation into the murky world of French opium dens, her entirely accidental participation in the running of the bulls in Pamplona, and a rather tiresome week on a Greek shipping vessel where, it is believed, designs for her groundbreaking double-gusset underpant first began to take shape.
