This guide serves as an index to the travel accounts section (DS 412 and 413) of the Ames Library. These are works that have identified chapters or sections dealing with a particular city.
Most travelers to South Asia visited Agra, Benares, Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi, and Madras. That makes those accounts easy to access, so accounts of these six cities are not provided in this guide. However, accounts of Benares not written in English have been included.
Some of our online resources also have travelers' accounts. For example, Travel Writing, Spectacle, and World History has hundreds of accounts by women of their travels across the globe from the early 19th century to the late 20th century.
