Transatlantic sketches : comprising visits to the most interesting scenes in North and South America, and the West Indies ; with notes on Negro slavery and Canadian emigration by James Edward Alexander( Book )

78 editions published between 1833 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir James Edward Alexander (1803-85), an officer in the British Army, travelled the world extensively and published over a dozen fascinating accounts of his journeys. A passionate and intrepid explorer, Alexander was instrumental in ensuring the safe transfer of Cleopatra's Needle from Egypt to England in 1877. Demonstrating the same humour with which his writing is imbued, he later buried pictures of the twelve most beautiful English women of the time at the base of the Needle. Published in 1833, this two-volume work offers insights into the landscapes, peoples and practices of the Americas. With wit and eloquence, Alexander takes the reader with him on his adventures, but also provides significant commentary on the slave populations he encountered. Volume 2 covers Alexander's journey through North America and his return to England

This omnibus presents a unique perspective of travel writing by Indians describing Europe during the 18th and 19th century. This theme provides the missing link in the east-west paradigm. Whereas the other aspect of the western perspective on Indian civilization has been studied for quite some time, the descriptions of this omnibus invert this image and show Europe in the eyes of the Indian traveller during the arrival of modernity in the subcontinent
