Following The Equator is a travel book from Mark Twain, published in 1897. It came about after a tour he made of the British Empire, and includes biting and witty observations, criticising racism, imperialism and missionaries. Fully illustrated, each chapter starts with a 'Pudd'nhead maxim', which are ironic wisdoms from the Twain character 'Pudd'nhead Wilson'. Here's an example; 'Names are not always what they seem. The common Welsh name Bzjxxllwep is pronounced Jackson'.
