“One must travel, to learn.”

– Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad

 

This famous Mark Twain novel, “The Innocents Abroad”, was an important novel in the history of ‘subscription only’ books. This book was huge – comparatively speaking – to the size of other books. When first printed, it resembled the size of a desk dictionary and gave the buyer a sense of ‘more for your money’ because of its girth. It is considered Twain’s first real success and is described as a travel (or anti-travel, perhaps) book and is one of the best-selling travel books of all time. (Melton).
