A Summer Ramble in Syria with a Tartar Trip from Aleppo to Stamboul
London: Richard Bentley 1835 - London: Richard Bentley, 1835. First Edition. 2 volumes bound together. Complete. The London & Westminster Review (April 1836) describes this Monro's account as "an uncommon and entertaining narrative of more than ordinary merit"É Monro's "descriptions are spirited and graphic, and his style is lively and idiomatic, devoid of stiffness or affectation". The lithographic plates show a pilgrim encampment on the banks of the Jordan, and Monro's bivouac on Mount Lebanon. Monro's narrative is a desirable nineteenth-century account of this Middle Eastern region. Atabey 827; Blackmer 1148; Rohricht 1833; Weber I, 234. [Attributes: First Edition]
