Travels in the Atlas and southern Morocco : a narrative of exploration by Joseph Thomson( Book )

15 editions published between 1889 and 2012 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In introducing this book to the reader, little need be said. It is nothing more than what it pretends to be - a Personal Narrative of Exploration. It does not claim to be a book on Morocco, and consequently may appear in many respects to be very defective. To write such a book was originally my ambition when I turned my attention to that remarkable country, but the abrupt and premature conclusion of my travels has made me perforce alter my intention, and devote myself to recording only something of what we saw and experienced in the parts in which we travelled. It has, moreover, been as much my object to sketch pictures as to chronicle facts. For the same reason this book has been made a personal narrative, with its inevitable frequent use of the first person singular or plural"--Preface
