Description

Though the tale he relates typifies the Englishman abroad, Edward Rae, the author of this work, allows no such reserve to stand between himself and his acute observations. Amusing and urbane, Rae illuminates the places he visits and the characters he meets with his refreshingly light narrative style. He makes no claim to 'convey much original or novel information' about the regions around Tripoli and Kairwan which he visited in 1875, none the less, his modesty belies a work of no little historical value. This fine facsimile edition includes the author's delicately etched illustrations, which further enhance the work's lasting charm.show more
