Author Title Price Purchase

(Frome & London. Butler & Tanner). (1875?). pp. viii, 372. 8vo. Original blue cloth with gilt lettering, spine slightly dulled. Later endpapers. COPAC lists one copy held by Glasgow University Library. They list the author as Grant but with no further information. The author describes the book as 'a series of rough sketches and shorthand notes taken at the time, and many on the spot, woven together for the purpose of forming a detailed account of my experiences and impressions during my Eastern tour of 1872 - 1873.' He sails from Harwich, travels to Antwerp, Brussels, Cologne, Munich, Innsbruck, Verona, Bologna, Florence, Rome, Naples, Brindisi, Alexandria, Cairo, Memphis & Sakhara, Ismailia, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Beyrout, Cyprus, Cos, Smyrna, Constantinople, Skutari, Vienna, Prague, Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg, and back to London. Very occasionally the text is illustrated with a literary quote and sometime it is Byron. Apart from the use of Childe Harold as a pseudonym there is very little that is Byronic in the book.
