This is a Boundary Bay Classics Edition of a classic novel Three Men In A Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. The book is a humorous account by the author during a two-week boating holiday on the Thames from Kingston upon Thames to Oxford and back to Kingston. The book was initially intended to be a serious travel guide, with accounts of local history along the route, but the humorous elements took over to the point where the serious and somewhat sentimental passages seem a distraction to the comic novel.
