Overview

The New York Times published his obituary on its front page, referring to him as "a great traveler, both on land and paper." He was a poet, literary critic, translator, and a travel writer of great renown.

This is his magisterial account of his voyage up the Nile through Egypt and the Sudan in 1851. Though many 19th century writers wrote about Egypt, Taylor captured exquisite details of life and antiquities and he went much farther up the Nile than most writers.

Considered one of the premier travel writers of his day, he was known to the wide public and to many of his famous contemporaries. If you've been to Egypt, you'll treasure his descriptions of familiar places. If you've never been, he'll take you along.

For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
