Queer Things about Egypt
Hurst & Blackett, Limited, 1911 - 428 pages
This book is filled with varied information about Egypt. Everything is touched upon—the people, their customs, and manner of writing English, descriptions of scenery, history and social conditions—in the manner of a well informed traveler willing to tell all he knows. 1t is an entertaining book, and one which a visitor to Egypt could hardly afford to be without, especially the seekers of recreation in perusing passages of sprightly talk about things new and old, maintained by a man who is likely to have cheered many a table and fireside by his traveler's tales.
