London: Tinsley Brothers, 1870. First Edition. 8vo, pp xix, 491, with frontis engraving, title vignette, and folding map. In a simple modern binding of quarter leather and patterned boards.

Burton traveled from Santos, Brazil (where he was Consul) to Paraguay in order to observe and report of the Paraguayan War, which was fought between Paraguay and the "Triple Alliance" of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay in 1864-1870.
