Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This volume contains a collection of diary entries written by Dr. John William Polidori. They were penned while he accompanied Lord Byron as his personal physician. It contains interesting and insightful anecdotes of the experiences that they had while travelling through Europe, and it will be of considerable utility to anyone with an interest in the seminal romantic poet. The chapters of this volume include: “Ghent”, “The Diary of Polidora”, “Antwerp”, “Brussels”, “Waterloo”, “Chateau du Lac”, “Battice”, “St. Juliers”, “Cologne”, “The Rhine”, “Coblentz”, “Mayence”, “Carlsruhe”, “Jura Mountains”, etcetera. John William Polidori (1795 - 1824) was an English writer and physician. He is famous for his association with the Romantic Movement, and is credited as the originator of the 'vampire genre' in fiction. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
