Catalogue Note

In the preface, the publishers acknowledge their gratitude to John M. Cook of Thomas Cook and Co. for “the facilities afforded to Mr Junghaendel during his tour up the Nile”. While the photographs were intended to better those more commonly available to tourists, this collection, presented in topographical sequence with explanatory text, was published “in order to keep the reminiscences fresh in the memory of those who have returned home, or to awaken the desire to see the wonders of Egypt [of those who have not already] share[d] in this pleasure”.
