About this Item

First edition. Portrait frontispiece. 8vo, publisher’s original pale blue buckram gilt lettered and decorated on the spine. xv, 419 pp. A well preserved and clean copy with the spine a bit mellowed as is usual. FIRST EDITION. "This book is a popular account of Burton's life. It was written in indignation against Lady Burton's 'Life,' and more especially in strong disapproval of his so-called bed-conversion.Of interest are her remarks on pp. 43-4 concerning Burton's Persian love, which Lady Burton ignores completely" (Penzer, p. 311). Stisted also devotes more attention to Burton's "Pilgrimage" than did his wife. Bookseller Inventory # 26437
