About the Authors
  • This four-volume collection was issued by the Paris publisher Furne in the mid-nineteenth century to showcase the work of recent French explorers for a readership avid for accounts of exotic foreign lands. Volume 4 was prepared by Alfred Jacobs (1802–62), an archivist and palaeographer, drawing heavily on an 1839 publication by Jean-Baptiste Benoit Eyriès (1767–1846). Eyriès was a founder member of the French Geographical Society and a member of the Asiatic Society, trained in botany and mineralogy, an accomplished linguist and seasoned traveller, who wrote, edited and translated a substantial number of works on geography, travel and exploration. Like earlier volumes in Furne's collection, this account of Asia and Africa takes the form of a fictionalised journey, making use of a wide range of additional sources to give readers as complete a picture as possible. This 1859 edition is illustrated with twenty-two engravings.
