The Road to Oxiana by Robert Byron

In August 1933, Robert Byron set off from Venice to view the holy sites and artistic treasures of the Middle East. His acoount of that scholar’s quest is one of the most eclectic, adventurous and entertaining travel books of all time. From the moment Byron’s charcoal-fuelled Rolls Royce fails to appear in Beirut, to his duplicitous entrance into the forbidden shrine at Meshed, is is a constant joy, as excruciating journeys and breathtaking architecture are recounted with the same life-affirming verve.
