  • Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhereby Jan Morris

    Simon & Schuster 2001; US$ 15.99

    One hundred years ago, Trieste was the chief seaport of the entire Austro-Hungarian empire, but today many people have no idea where it is. This fascinating Italian city on the Adriatic, bordering the former Yugoslavia, has always tantalized Jan Morris with its moodiness and melancholy. She has chosen it as the subject of this, her final work, because... more...

  • Hong Kongby Jan Morris

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 17.00

    In its last days under British rule, the Crown Colony of Hong Kong is the world's most exciting city, at once fascinating and exasperating, a tangle of contradictions. It is a dazzling amalgam of conspicuous consumption and primitive poverty, the most architecturally incongruous yet undeniably beautiful urban panorama of all. World-renowned travel... more...

  • The Venetian Empireby Jan Morris

    Penguin Books Ltd 1990; US$ 14.09

    For six centuries the Republic of Venice was a maritime empire, its sovereign power extending throughout much of the eastern Mediterranean – an empire of coasts, islands and isolated fortresses by which, as Wordsworth wrote, the mercantile Venetians 'held the gorgeous east in fee'. Jan Morris reconstructs the whole of this glittering dominion in... more...

  • Oxfordby Jan Morris

    Oxford University Press, UK 1987; US$ 12.99

    King James I once said that if he were not a king he would like to be an Oxford man. `I was a modest, good-humoured boy,' wrote Max Beerbohm, `it is Oxford that has made me insufferable.'An entertaining blend of fact and anecdote, this is a classic account of the character, history, mores, buildings, climate, and people of a unique city, which... more...

  • In My Mind's Eyeby Jan Morris

    Faber & Faber 2018; US$ 16.99

So begins this extraordinary book, a collection of diary pieces that Jan Morris wrote for the Financial Times over the course of 2017. A former soldier... more...

  • Europeby Jan Morris

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 15.49

    Europe has been widely acclaimed as among the finest achievements of 'one of our greatest living writers' ( The Times ).
