Book Description London John Murray, 1822. First edition. 4to., vi, 333pp., 16 lithographed plates, one folding, 2 engraved folding maps, contemporary half calf gilt, an excellent example. Waddington and Hanbury, both Cambridge fellows, decided to embark on an antiquarian tour of Egypt. They were received by the Governor, Mohammed Ali, who gave them permission to travel into Upper Egypt. Dressed as Turks and accompanied by an Irishman, James Curtin, two Maltese, and a setter dog named Anubis, they ascended the Nile as far as Meroe. Whilst there they encountered the American traveller George English, and at Wadi Haifa met the French mineralogist Frederic Cailliaud, both of whom were described in offensive terms by Waddington who had little time for Westerners who appeared to have "turned native."
