    A Quite Remarkable Man: The Life Of Patrick Brydone And His Family (1736-1818)
    John Evans - Hardback - Amberley
    A Scot from the Borders, Patrick Brydone made his name when his book, a tour of Sicily and Malta in 1770, became a bestseller throughout the world. A tutor to the sons of the gentry, and a man who today would be called a polymath, Brydone ventured some 10,000 miles across Central and Eastern Europe as far as St Petersburg. When he returned he was invited to take charge of the education and training of the prime minister's sons, a service Lord North well rewarded. Here is the first biography of this remarkable figure.
