Subject: Britain through others' eyes

I am interested in finding 19th century British works that employ the technique of showing how Britain (or parts thereof) appears through the eyes of a fictional foreigner.  Southey's Letters from England, Arnold's Friendship's Garland come to mind.  Works in the tradition of Montesquiou's Persian Letters, perhaps.  Any genre.  Suggestions?
