‘Highly regarded by Edward Gibbon, Thomas Shaw, who travelled in North Africa, Egypt, the Sinai desert, Palestine and Syria in the 1720s, can in many respects be considered the precursor of later and enlightened writers on the Arab world such as the Russell brothers and Burckhardt. His aim to provide a "natural history", especially of Algeria, where he was appointed chaplain to the factory of English merchants in 1720 and where he spent thirteen years, the valuable information – botanical, zoological and topographical – which his travels contain, his habit of giving a number of toponyms in Arabic characters, the care he took to copy Roman inscriptions in North Africa and hieroglyphics in Egypt, and, finally, the exceptionally good plates and maps in his work, all entitled Shaw to a place among the most observant and reliable visitors to the east. Educated at Oxford, and, after his return to England, appointed Regius Professor of Greek at the university, Shaw also had a superior cultural background which emerges from the classical texts reproduced in the appendices. Yet not only was Shaw more interested in classical antiquity than contemporary Arab society, but he was far less sympathetic to the Arabs than many of his successors. Resenting "the jealous and insolent Behaviour of the Arabs, when they are Masters", he clearly preferred areas where they were as firmly dominated as possible by the Turks, and he certainly preferred North Africa (and above all Tunisia) to the Near East. Like Thévenot, however, he saw in most of the places he visited "a large Scene of Ruin and Desolation", despotism and ignorance’.‘First published in 1738, the Travels bear a dedication to King George II with a reference to the generous patronage of Queen Caroline . . . . Like Thomas Fuller, Shaw dedicated each plate in his book to a different friend or patron. Later, it was translated into German, Dutch and French, and was studied with interest by the ideologists of the French invasion of Algeria’ (Alastair Hamilton, Europe and the Arab World p. 120)
