8vo. 240 pp. Half-title, index; foxed. Original full tan gilt-stamped bevelled buckram, t.e.g. LIMITED EDITION of 100 copies printed on handmade paper, each hand-numbered (#63). This work supplements Norman Penzer's broadly reaching bibliography of the works of Sir Richard Francis Burton. Many readers found that the bibliography referenced items so rare that they were unable to obtain copies. Penzer, recognizing this need, selected these papers both for their rarity and for their being representative of Burton's character. Thereby Penzer interjects comments relative to each of these 'chapters' – adding to his bibliographic narrative. Contents: Early Days in Sind; Guide-Book to Mecca; A Trip to Harar; Notes on Scalping; A Day Amongst the Fans; Notes on the Dahoman; Chapters from Travels; Notes on Rome; Spiritualism in Eastern Lands; and his study of Italian Egyptologist Giovanni Battista Belzoni.
