Description

This 1948 edition of this popular work, first published in 1844 presents an entertaining account of the author's Eastern travels. Ostensibly with a view to providing a suggested outline of a tour to the interested reader, the book's portrayal of the internal journey one takes when travelling is as important an aspect of the book's value as is the historical interest it provides.
