Five Years in Damascus free pdf Excerpt from Five Years in Damascus: With Travels and Researches in Palmyra, Lebanon, the Giant Cities of Bashan, and the Hauran In preparing a New Edition of this Work I have not thought it necessary to retain minute topographical details. These have already served the purpose for which they were originally written - to rectify the map of that section of Eastern Syria embraced in my travels. I have also omitted the Greek and other inscriptions, as they are of little importance to the general reader, and the scholar may now obtain access to them in the 'Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature, ' where they have been published, with a valuable commentary by John Hogg, Esq., F.R.S. While I have thoroughly revised the whole work, carefully re-examined every point connected with geography and antiquities embraced in it, and considered with respectful attention the critiques with which numerous reviewers and correspondents have favoured me, I have not seen my way to change a single statement, or modify a single opinion. The book remains in substance as it was written fourteen years ago. That part of the work which treats of the ancient kingdom and cities of Bashan has recently excited more than ordinary attention, and has, apparently for this very reason, called forth, from a certain class of critics, covert insinuations and open charges, which, in my opinion, are both unfounded and unfair. Every author courts criticism. But criticism to be effectual must be honest. When alleged facts are questioned by a critic, the evidence against them ought to be fully stated. When opinions are disputed, the reasons should be clearly assigned. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
