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.
An essay to direct and extend the inquiries of patriotic travellers : with further observations on the means of preserving the life, wealth & property of the unexperienced in their journies by land and sea : also a series of questions ... : to which is annexed a list of English and foreign works intended for the instruction and benefit of travellers ... / by Count Leopold Berchtold, Knight of the military Order of St. Stephen of Tuscany &c. &c.
