Not illustrated. 1863 edition. Excerpt: ...by they even suffer from dearth of provisions. There are more mountains than plains. Their habitations are very poor, and they have no walled places.1 Many jewels come into our parts by the hands of these people, because through the liberty they enjoy, and their sanctity, they go where jewels are produced, and carry them into other countries without any expense.
