Mrs Mortimer’s Xenophobic Travel Guide


Mrs M shaking finger

Favell Lee Mortimer (1802-78) set foot outside of England only twice in her life. This did not stop her from writing books that promoted stereotypical, wildly prejudiced ideas about the peoples of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and America.

Mrs Mortimer’s Xenophobic Travel Guide puts the good woman onstage for the first time. You have much to learn from her.
