I'm looking at version 3.4.0 of Evince in a rather old
version of Ubuntu.  There is indeed an action labeled "back"
available for the toolbar, though not by default, that
serves, more or less, this function.  It seems to be
page-oriented rather than location-oriented.  Thus, in using
"back" to move to a page that is already partly visible, it
may appear that nothing happends.  It does stack a list of prior

Curiously there is no (default) menu item for this "back".
There are two menus for the toolbar: (a) View->Toolbar,
which controls whether the toolbar is display and
(b) Edit->Toolbar, which opens a window listing functions not
presently on the toolbar.  Functions may be dragged back and
forth between the toolbar itself and the edit-toolbar

I hope this function has not been removed from more recent
versions of Evince.
