'On the 14th August, 1816, the Hon. Charles Leonard Irby and James Mangles, Commanders in the Royal Navy, left England with the intention of making a tour on the continent. This journey they were led to extend far beyond the original design. Curiosity at first, and an increasing admiration of antiquities as they advanced, carried them at length through several parts of the Levant, which have been little visited by modern travellers...' So beings one of the most fascinating nineteenth century accounts of travel in the Middle East. This work, originally published in 1823, comprises five extended letters from members of the expedition as it progresses from : (i) Cairo to the Second Cataract of the Nile; (ii) Cairo to Aleppo; (iii) Aleppo to Damascus; (iv) Damascus to Jerusalem; (v) Jerusalem to Acre. It is the immediacy of this form of narrative that provides the work with its greatest fascination, and this, along with the original maps, drawings and exquisite prints, makes this facsimile edition particularly attractive.
