Travels in South-Western Asia - Blisset, Captain] - 1823. [1224313]
Dublin, J. Jones, 1823. - 12mo. 180 pp. Rebound in green buckram. Title page with engraved vignette of a Kangaroo and three full page engraved plates. First edition. - A third hand account of the travels of one Captain Blisset, "an Englishman of birth and large fortune", in company with William Walsh, from Bombay, to the Persian Gulf, having toured which they pass on to Muscat and Mecca, thence to the Holy Land. Nothing seems to be known of Blisset. Possibly a fictitious account, but the detail seems firmly based on fact, save for the incongruous Kangaroo on the title page.
