Notes

First edition, presentation copy, with the author's inscription on the front free endpaper, "Mrs. J. Watson with the Author's love, Jan. 1st. 1847", and with his extensive marginal annotations and amplifications throughout. Essentially an abridgement of Leyden and Erskine's translation of Baber's autobiography with "many geographical descriptions... altered and enlarged with the aid of later authorities" (preface).
