The Life and Adventures of Nathaniel Pearce, Volume 2 : Written by Himself, during a Residence in Abyssinia from the Years 1810-1819; Together with Mr Coffin's Account of his First Visit to Gondar by Nathaniel Pearce( )

1 edition published in 1831 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathaniel Pearce (1779-1820) was, according to J. J. Halls, who edited and published his autobiographical writings in 1831, 'one of those remarkable and adventurous beings, whom Nature ... seems to take delight in creating'. Having run away to sea twice, deserted from the navy, accidentally killed a man, and briefly converted to Islam, he came into his own as a guide and factotum to British travellers in Egypt. He accompanied Henry Salt's 1805 mission to Abyssinia, where he married a local girl and served the ruler of Tigré until the latter's death in 1816. Pearce's humorous account of his life is particularly interesting in the details it gives of the land and people of Ethiopia, then little known by Europeans. In Volume 2, the situation in Abyssinia becomes dangerous and Pearce decides to escape down the Nile. The journal ends abruptly in 1819, a year before his death
The Life and Correspondence of Henry Salt, Esq., Volume 2 : His Britannic Majesty's Late Consul General in Egypt by J. J Halls( )

1 edition published in 1834 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The traveller and antiquary Henry Salt (1780-1827) hoped to become a portrait painter, but recognised his own limitations, and instead entered the employment of Viscount Valentia, embarking with him on an eastern tour in 1802. In 1805, Valentia sent him on a mission to improve relations with the rulers of Abyssinia. After a second expedition, this time on behalf of the British government, in which he made observations and collections of the local flora and fauna, he was appointed consul-general to Egypt, and in his spare time carried out excavations at Thebes and Abu Simbel. This two-volume work was published in 1834 by Salt's close friend, the painter J. J. Halls (1776-1853). Volume 2 describes Salt's later career in Egypt, as a diplomat and especially as a pioneering archaeologist, as well as his negotiations over the future of his own spectacular collection of Egyptian artefacts
