Burton was Consul at Damascus from 1865-1871. During that period Tyrwhitt-Drake went to Syria as a representative of the Palestine Exploration Fund, but for some reason he left the Fund, and he and Burton continued the exploration of Syria and Lebanon on their own. This work is not a continuous narrative of their travels but consists of articles by Burton, Tyrwhitt-Drake, Isabel Burton and others. The plates include shells, plants, and Burton's collection of anthropological materials from the Holy Land (skulls etc.) The text contains catalogues of these materials.

First edition. 2 vols, 8vo, iii-xx, 360; iii-viii, 400 pp., bound without half-titles, two lithographed frontispieces, folding map (repaired at fold), 25 lithographed plates, 11 folding, including 10 calligraphic plates lithographed in brown, contemporary half calf gilt, marbled sides and edges, red and green morocco labels, lightly rubbed, a very good set.

Blackmer 247; Casada 68; Penzer p.85-8.
