Thomas, Lucy and Alatau: The Atkinsons’ Adventures in Siberia and the Kazakh Ste John Massey Stewart

£25.00

This is the first full biography of an unjustly forgotten man: Thomas Witlam Atkinson (1799-1861), architect, artist, traveller extraordinaire, author – and bigamist. Famous in his lifetime as ‘the Siberian traveller’, he spent 7 years travelling nearly 40,000 miles through the Urals, Kazakhstan and Siberia with special authorisation from the Tsar, producing 560 watercolour sketches – many published here for the first time – of the often dramatic scenery and exotic peoples.
