9781616405496: Travels in Egypt and Nubia, Syria, and the Holy Land: Including a Journey Round the Dead Sea, and Through the Country East of the Jordan

Travels in Egypt and Nubia, Syria, and the Holy Land is a detailed journal from two commanders in the British Royal Navy, documenting their time in the Middle East during a "tour of the Continent." Though the two captains, also relatives by marriage, had only intended on a short excursion, they extended their stay and explored the area for more than four years, from 1816 to 1820. The result is an extensive and intricate study of Middle East culture and land. Included are sections on Egypt and Nubia, Syria, and Petra and the Dead Sea. Entries are organized by date and include subjects such as, "Our Party and its Objects," "Crocodiles," "Visit to the Pyramids," "Convent on Mount Carmel," "Troubles with our Escort," and "Observations on the Character and Customs of the Arabs." This entertaining and informative read will be of interest to historians and students of Middle Eastern culture. The honorable Captain CHARLES LEONARD IRBY (1789-1845) was a captain in the British Royal Navy. He was married to Frances Mangles, daughter of John Mangles. He died at age 56 on December 3, 1845. JAMES MANGLES (1786-1867) was a naval captain in the British Royal Navy. Throughout his travels, he collected plant specimens and seeds, developing a reputation as a botanist and explorer. He died November 18, 1867 in Fairfield, Exeter, England.
