Introduction:

In response to the expressed wish of many friends, I have ventured to present in book form some of the impressions and experiences derived from a somewhat lengthened residence in Egypt.

In doing so, I make no attempt to produce a work of any critical value, my aim being rather to give a broadly pictorial representation of the life and scenery of the country, and particularly those phases of each which lie off the beaten track. Nor do 1 pretend to fully illustrate my text or describe my illustrations; but my hope is, that each, amplifying the other, may convey to the reader a little of the fascination of the country, and perhaps excite some feeling of sympathetic interest in a people I have learned to like so well.


I would like to avail myself of this opportunity of expressing my grateful thanks to my many friends in Egypt, who, by facilities offered and information given, have so materially assisted me in gaining such knowledge of the country as I possess. My thanks are also heartily rendered to the proprietors of Black and White and The Century Magazine for their kind permission to repeat matter already published by them, and also to the many owners of my work, who have so generously allowed the reproduction of pictures in their possession — a courteous and kindly co-operation without which it would have been almost impossible to complete this volume.
