  • 19th-Century Australian Travel Writing

    The illustrated Orient-Pacific Line Guide. Chapters for Travellers by Sea and by Land was edited for the managers of the line by British clergyman and writer, William John Loftie (1839-1911), B.A., F.S.A., F.Z.S. Orient-Pacific Line Guide. Chapters for Travellers by Sea and by Land is a guide for travellers on the Orient-Pacific Line, offering information and description of the places on the route, as well as serving as an extensive advertisement for the Orient Steam Navigation Company. Australia's history, landscape, Aboriginal peoples, industries and political situation were described, with each colony meriting a section. According to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography Loftie was a “literary antiquary whose work may have lacked original scholarship but was usually well informed, written in an attractive style, and enlivened with strong personal opinions, especially on architecture.” His other works included A History of London (1883); Windsor, and The Authorised Guide to the Tower of London (1885); In and Out of London, or, The Half-Holidays of a Town Clerk (1875); Landseer and Animal Painting in England (1891); Reynolds and Children's Portraiture in England (1891), and Inigo Jones and Wren, or, Rise and Decline of Modern Architecture in England (1893). Loftie published his travel narrative A Ride in Egypt from Sioot to Luxor in 1879, with Notes on the Present State and Ancient History of the Nile Valley in 1879 and also contributed to the Royal Archaeological Institute's Archaeological Journal (1872–82).
