Eduard Lill, writing in Vienna in 1891, presented elements of a law of travel and the statistical testing of it with empirical data from the Austro-Hungarian Empire in which he anticipates much in current geographic models of spatial interaction. Because of the increasing importance of Lills ideas, it was thought that a translation of his Law of Travel and Its Application to Rail Traffic would be appropriate. A commentary on the work is also provided. Essentially, Lill has provided one form of gravity model including intervening opportunities.
