From the Black Sea Through Persia and India
Harper & brothers, 1896 - 437 Seiten
A travel memoir in diary-style. The author explains in the preface that he did not intend to take the route described here, but civil war in Afghanistan and a cholera epidemic forced him to travel through Kurdistan and Persia. Some hand-drawn illustrations provide images of the author's journey. Special chapters at the end include the author's commentary on Hinduism and Islam in India, Indian art, and impressions of everyday life for English people in India.
