. Small 8vo. Pp. (iv), 203, (1) with errata leaf tipped in. Original cloth, rubbed and spine ends chipped. Rare travelogue of a journey made in 1846 by an officer returning through Europe to his regimental base in India.

From there he passed through Naples, Sorrento, Malta and Alexandria before taking a steamer from Cairo to Madras. This work is one of only two known from the Colombian Press at Bangalore! The second work is a Tamil language book printed in 1850. See: D.E. Rhodes article in The British Museum Quarterly, vol. 34 no. 3/4 (1970), pp. 83-86.
