Narrative of a Journey in Egypt and the Country Beyond The Cataracts, 1816
Nabu Press, 2011
This is an original work of the traveller Thomas Legh. It takes you across the seas to Egypt. Be prepared for adventures involving crocodiles, excavations, the plague, near-asphyxiation in a cave and accusation of murder and black magic.
The book was one of the sources for my Writer’s Travel Guide post about Lyme Park.
