Pre-dates John Murray's & Thomas Cook's first travel guides to India ...
The subject, its breadth and depth, though challenging has been addressed with ease, clarity and elegance. Very impressive to see the references to various works and Latin phraseology indicating, not only how well traveled, but also, how well read he was.
The passage about man eating tiger pages ~56 is quite vivid yet not gory. A sign of a true gentleman who is a connoisseur of beauty even in frightening circumstances.
