The Nile Boat free pdf Excerpt from The Nile Boat: Or Glimpses of the Land of Egypt To add another book on Egypt to the number that have already appeared, may almost appear like a piece of presumption. But it should be remarked, that besides the army of erudite4 savans' who have enlisted themselves in the study of its antiquities, there has always been a dying corps of light-armed skirmishers, who, going lightly over the ground, busy themselves chiefly with its picturesque aspect- who aim at giving lively impressions of actual sights, and at thus creating an interest which may lead the reader to a further investigation of the subject This class of writers can, of course, even when successful in their object, claim but a very humble rank. The modicum of historical and archeological lore with which they are accustomed to season their narratives must, naturally, be borrowed from others- all the merit that falls to them being the faithful description of what they have themselves beheld. Of such slight texture is the composition of the present volume. The author had, indeed, entirely renounced the idea of preparing one, and was only encouraged to do so by the kind reception of a recent production of the same stamp, which aimed at producing distinctness of impressions by the combination of the pencil and the pen. While disclaiming for tho text of his book any pretensions to originality, the writer is anxious to say that this is not the case with the illustrations, of which the whole were drawn upon the spot, many of them with the Camera Lucida. He has endeavoured to present, within small compass, as much variety as possible, displaying the principal monuments of the earlier or Pharaonic monuments, as at Thebee- the later Ptolemaic style, as at Edfou and Phil- with some of the most beautiful specimens of the Arabian, at Cairo.
