Rambles in Egypt and Candia, with Details of the Military Power and Resources of Those Countries, and Observations on the Government, Policy, and Commercial System of Mohammed Ali Two Volumes

London: Henry Colburn, 1837. Scarce. In his preface, the author states that there have been so many books about Egypt, but that his intent is to describe Egypt as it is, not as it was. Candia refers to the Venetian name for Crete at that time. During his military career Scott traveled in Crete and Syria. The two volumes are bound in nineteenth century three quarter black leather with marbled paper covers and endpapers. Leather is bumped and lightly rubbed. Marbled covers are scuffed. Text pages have browning and aging throughout but are quite legible. Volume I has frontis and two plates; Volume II has frontis, one plate, and fold-out map with the plan for Karnak. Very good. Small octavos. Volume I: 348 pages; Volume II: 358 pages.GREEK/032921.
