Excerpt from With Star and Crescent: A Full and Authentic Account of a Recent Journey With a Caravan From Bombay to Constantinople, Comprising a Description of the Country, the People, and Interesting Adventures With the Natives
The description of objects, customs, and peculi... ar habits of the people, and the relating of amusing and adventurous incidents, are entirely from personal observations and experiences of the author, and do not refer in any manner to any preceding publication upon a kindred subject.
The illustrations are from original pencil drawings sketched by the author upon the spot, and correctly picture the present unprogressive state of that Eastern country.
