"An amusing and interesting account of cultural encounter, Joseph Ballard's account provides sharp observerations on everything from architecture to Zaphna portraits, pleasure gardens to prisons, capturing the collision of high and low culture that was so characteristic of late Georgian London. Supplemented with useful editorial apparatus, it provides an excellent window into discussion and debate on British and American history and the study of cultural difference."
