A sketcher's tour around the world by Robert Elwes

This book is simply a record of travels, undertaken for no purpose but my own amusement; but as, in the course of so long a ramble, I visited many places of interest, and penetrated to spots not familiar to Europeans, I venture to give the impressions of my wanderings, such as they are, to the world, without apologizing for my temerity.

We live in an age when almost everyone travels; and perhaps there is so much more reason for publishing the result of our experiences and observations, as it is not only interesting, as far as it goes, to the few who remain at home, but may afford information to those who follow in our steps. I cannot but hope that my book may be useful in at least the latter respect; and, as regards the other, the public will no doubt award it, in the end, as much favor as it can reasonably claim.
