This travelogue by a New York Tribune correspondent chronicles his journey to Charles Lamb’s home in Edmonton, approximately ten miles southeast of London. The preface to the travelogue laments the fading memory of Lamb (1775-1834), a British essayist, children’s story writer, and poet. The author visits Lamb’s home, Bay cottage, “a modest little tenement, approached by a narrow strip of garden, and shouldered into the background by more pretentious neighbors.” Also during the journey, the author meets the sexton, who buried Lamb, and details Lamb’s well-maintained gravestone.
