Greatest Traveler of His Time, 1892-1952

In a time before air travel or radio, on the brink of a revolution in photography and filmmaking, Burton Holmes set out across the globe.

The “world’s greatest traveler” visited nearly every country on the planet, bringing home more than 30,000 photographs, 500,000 feet of film, and unbelievable travel stories that first exposed America to some of these far-flung, mysterious lands. A rare window onto the world of 100 years ago.
