Racket, with the scrupulous accuracy which the perfected process of modem science permits."—Extract from Publisher? Preface.

"The following pages embrace, in addition to a summary of the most important hydrographical results of the vo>age, my remarks on the inhabitants, the vegetation, the products, and other topics of interest in connection with these countries—not in the dry form originally assumed by them of a diary, but in the more inviting shape of chapters, under which easier access may be had to the whole.
"The illustrations, which I regard as indispensably supplementary to the description of scenes so foreign to us, are from sketches taken on the spot, and, for preservation of their minute fidelity, drawn on the blocks by myself; and the name of one of our first wood-engravers will further warrant their accuracy."—Extract from Pre/ace.
