A propos de cet article

Xx,13-509 pages, 28 plates, 2 folding maps, cloth, light shelf wear otherwise very good. Both maps have a few tears but are otherwise in excellent condition. Ninth edition, revised. From the preface: 'The object of the expedition, the narrative of which is here presented, was unknown to the public, until a very short time prior to its departure from the United States, when the indications were such as to induce me to apprehend that it was not appreciated. Nevertheless, I had an abiding faith in the ultimate issue, which cheered me on, for I felt that a liberal and enlightened community would not long condemn an attempt to explore a distant river, and its wondrous reservoir, - the first, teeming with sacred associations, and the last, enveloped in a mystery, which had defied all previous attempts to penetrate it.' From Wikipedia: "Captain William Francis Lynch (1 April 1801 - 17 October 1865) , was an officer in the United States and Confederate States navies. ~ Lynch had his first command, the Poinsett, from 3 March to 30 December 1839. The ship sailed on behalf of the United States Naval Hydrographic Office. In 1847, he proceeded to the Jordan River, transporting overland, by camels, a copper and a galvanized iron boat. A total of 16 men were a part of the trip, including John Y. Mason. Each boat each boat "assembled" and then placed on a carriage. His expedition ended with the exploration of the Dead Sea and the River Jordan.". N° de réf. du libraire 18693
