Travel writing as it used to be

A magnificent collection of historic travel books, amassed by one couple over half a century, goes on sale at Sotheby’s in London tomorrow. In all there are some 400 books, from the 17th century onwards, telling the stories of explorers and travellers, scientists and sailors, botanists and big-game hunters. I interviewed John Bonham, one of the collectors, for The Daily Telegraph.
