Nile By Amelia Blanford Edwards The way the author show. I came to this book after coming across a reference to the author at the Beyond Beauty Egypt exhibition in London It's a fascinating read not least because of the time distance from which she is writing She sees everything through very different eyes from ours Egypt in her day was very unexplored and wild for European visitors so she and her party were pioneering down the Nile even before for example the source of the Nile had been discovered Much of the Egyptian scholarship has changed since her day but bearing that in mind it is still well worth a read for her acute observations However as regards this publication I have many reservations Firstly there are no illustrations Amelia Edwards was a keen water colourist and she sketched and painted prolifically Her drawings and paintings were turned into etchings for the original editions but these have not appeared here and are a sad loss You need pictures to reference what she says Also the typography is appallling It seems the original book has been scanned into a computer and translated automatically into a font but the whole book is absolutely full of errors making it very difficult to read

A Thousand Miles Up the NilePopular PDF A Thousand Miles Up MOBI #240 Miles Up the. I have never felt compelled to write a review before despite reading many excellent works and never having a problem with the Kindle but I felt I had to warn others before they took this particular version of this work The author manages to create what I felt was a really evocative picture of her trip up the Nile sometime in the late 1800's and I was freuently lost in that world imagining the antiuities she was describing However the formatting was completely poor Footnotes were randomly inserted into the middle of paragraphs in the same size and font often disrupting the thread of the narrative and making it hard to pick up again In addition the reproductions of the drawings were randomly sized and spaced with some pages clearly photocopied into the format and others converted somehow I was also disappointed to see on the final page that the copy from which they were taken had been removed from a public libraryThere may be better formats and the narrative itself may be worth persisting with but for the formatting alone this deserves zero stars it got 2 because I was engaged with the narrative Try out other versions before you invest
