Meet the Author

"BAYARD TAYLOR (1825 – 1878) was an American poet, literary critic, translator, and travel author from Kennett Square in Chester County, Pennsylvania. In 1846, he published Views Afoot, or Europe seen with Knapsack and Staff (2 vols, New York). This book's success brought Taylor recognition as an author. He was asked to serve as an editorial assistant for Graham's Magazine for a few months in 1848. That same year, Horace Greeley, then editor of the Tribune, placed Taylor on his staff.
In June 1878 he was accredited United States Minister at Berlin. Traveling on the same ship to Europe was Mark Twain, who noted that he was envious of Taylor's command of German." --Wikipedia

    Half a book

    I found it odd that all of German history, dating back to BC could be covered in 404 pages. I unfortunately was correct as this E copy stops abruptly in the 900s as opposed to the advertised 1800s. Shame, as it was well written and enjoyable. I would like the rest of the book, B&N
