Overview

Travelling by dahabiah, a well-appointed sailing craft peculiar to the Nile, and armed with sketch-book and measuring tape, Amelia Edwards carefully recorded all she saw of the temples, graves, and monuments - even discovering a buried chapel of her own- and provided in A Thousand Miles Up The Nile the first general archaeological survey of Egypt's ruins. The book is full of historical footnotes and careful details. Amelia Edwards was responsible for founding the first chair in Egyptology (a science she helped create) at University College London, and was behind the appointment of Sir Flinders Petrie. She established herself as one of the authorities on the subject of Ancient Egypt and her book A Thousand Miles Up the Nile has remained one of the most inspiring travel books in the subject.

    I have only read the sample Nook version so I can't comment on the writing.  I am very unhappy with the non-refundable NOOK version since they do not include the authori's 60 illustrations mentioned in the Overview.  Nothing in the Nook version said that the illustrations were not included.  Since the illustrations are part of the author's work I would not have purchased the nook version had I known they were not inlcuded.  B&N needst to make it clear when illustrations from printed versions are or are not included in the Nook versions.
