The Time Traveller - Rare Books & Modern Thought

The Dream: Bookshops vs. Xenophobia

The Time Traveller’s Bookshop is now at three locations along the dramatic west coast of Ireland and our confidence is growing that we are on the right path to bring international visitors and locals alike together in the calm and relaxing environment of our shops.

After a decade of bookshops closing all over the world, our dream is to repopulate the world with bookshops in remote areas and cities alike. Antiquarian, second-hand, specialist, no matter what kind of independent bookshop…we believe these rooms are important, rather essential spaces to give everyone a choice to learn the unexpected, find books they never knew existed, learn how important diversity is and overcome the greatest threat of our times: xenophobia. If you think your area needs one of these bookshops or you want to open your own indie bookshop, talk to us.

Hodgson, [Manuscript] Journal of a Voyage between Liverpool and New York 1874.

Hodgson, George G. [Charlotte Bronte / Clement Lingley Wragge (Meteorologist) / George Albert Frost (Artist)]. [Manuscript] Journal of a Voyage between Liverpool and New York 1874. A remarkable journal kept by a newly qualified surgeon of his 1874 trip to New York after 'passing my Primary examinations for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons' before starting to practice in the autumn The journal contains a profusion of vividly rendered and highly unconventional detail about life in America's metropolis including a visit to the cells at New York Police Headquarters, a dramatisation of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre on Broadway which prompts a foray by Hodgson into dramatic criticism ('If Miss Charlotte Bronte could have seen the play, she would have had some difficulty in recognising it as an adaptation of her own novel') and finally the return passage spent in the intoxicating company of a future White Mountains artist and a young man destined to become a leading Australian meteorologist, breaking off in the middle of a storm at sea: 'a wall of water... approaches with terrible rapidity, and shifting the ship on the side, makes her shiver from stem to stern, while the great mass falls with a crash onto the deck, and sweeps all before it into the dark and hungry ocean beyond.' New York, 1874. Octavo. 32 pages Original Softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. The Journal is accompanied by a very misleading replica of a wonderful whalers scrimshaw (the scrimshaw comes from a different source and was not originally part of this journal).
