Bible in Spain

Quick Reference

A narrative of travel by Borrow, published 1843.

Borrow travelled in Spain as distributor of Bibles for the British and Foreign Bible Society from 1835 to 1840, and this book purports to be an account of his adventures in a country racked by civil war. It is difficult to say how far the various incidents recounted actually occurred; but the vivid picture that the author gives of Spain is unquestionably realistic, and the work is one of the finest of English travel books.
