Item description for A Winter in the Azores - and a Summer at the Baths of the Furnas by Joseph Bullar...

In 1838, Joseph and Henry Bullar set out on a voyage from England to spend seven months in the Azores. This extraordinary journey led them to the islands of So Miguel, Faial, Pico, So Jorge, Flores, and Corvo. Wittily written, the narrative account of these travels is most endearing to modern readers, giving accurate descriptions of the customs, religion, education, trade, and agriculture of the bygone Azorean society. Contemplating the future while enjoying the thermal baths at Furnas, the Bullars wonder if one day "this quiet and healthful place should by means of transatlantic steamers and other consumptive luxuries be transformed into a second Madeira or rather into another Baden-Baden, and blow its pleasant bubbles like those from the Brunnens of Nassau." "Islands of great external beauty, rising abruptly out of the water to the height of several thousand feet, and clothed with green to their topmost acclivities; - what spot on the earth with such circumstances of enjoyment could be found in so large a measure, and with so few drawbacks?"
