Product Overview

Corsica in its Picturesque, Social and Historical Aspects: The Record of a Tour in the Summer of 1852 Originally published in 1853, this is the first English Translation by Russell Martineau. It details a tour through Corsica in exhaustive detail, and has excellent pieces on the local history, in particular the sections on Napoleon, bandits and the many battles that have taken place. Including chapters on the towns of Bastia, Isola Rossa, Calvi, Corte, Ajaccio, Val Ornano, Sartene, Bonifazio, and remarks on vendettas, bandit life, Pasquale Paoli & Napoleon. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
