In the beginning of the 19th century, Cyprus was but a mere stepping stone to the Orient. The island was not very well known; some visitors hardly bothered to step down from their vessels but rather contemplated the shore from afar as the vessels approached Larnaca. Later in the century, explorers, scholars, and finally "tourists" discovered the island and its beauties all at once: the deserted city of Famagusta, Nicosia the capital of the Lusignans, the charming and picturesque port of Kyrenia, Limassol where Richard the Lion Heart had landed, and Paphos whose mere name evokes Aphrodite, the most beautiful of all goddesses. The ancient photographs and texts assembled in this publication are an invitation to discover the compelling charm of the island and its inhabitants in the company of the late 19th and early 20th century travellers. Let yourselves drift in dream and travel.
