This wide-ranging travel diary--London, Paris, Rome, Egypt, Jerusalem, India, China, Japan, and much more--was kept by Charles Andrew Merz during his trip around the world from January 20 to August 14, 1921. Merz experienced far more than a typical tourist; he arrived with sheaves of letters of introduction, and met with a wide variety of important diplomats, industrialists, and authors during his various stops. He had a particular interest in nationalist movements. As a professional writer, he described all with a keen eye. On his travels he met with Colonel T. E. Lawrence, George Bernard Shaw, Henrietta Szold, Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, Sir Herbert Samuel, John Dewey, Bertrand Russell, and Viscount Shibusawa Eiichi. He also witnessed Winston Churchill's arrival in Cairo
