Catalogue Note

"The following notes of a journey made in search of health and scenery, were originally given to the late Editor of the 'Agra Ukhbar' (Mr. H. Tandy) as a mark of personal regard on the part of the writer, with the hope that the scenes and adventures described might occasionally afford some amusement to the readers of that journal" (Introduction). 

An extremely rare work, with only one other copy having appeared at auction before.
