Travels of lady hester stanhope : forming the completion of her memoirs by Charles Lewis Meryon( Book )
17 editions published between 1846 and 2012 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
The adventurous and unconventional Lady Hester Stanhope (1776-1839) set off to travel to the East in the early nineteenth century. She had been hostess to her uncle, British Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger, and after his death she received a government pension and decided to leave England. Her personal physician Charles Meryon (1783-1877) wrote this three-volume memoir of their travels, first published in 1846. She had a reputation as an eccentric, but thought of herself as the 'Queen of the desert' and indeed achieved considerable influence in the places she travelled to. Eventually she settled in the Lebanon, where she lived out the remainder of her life. She dressed in men's clothes to allow her to go to places not considered safe for a lady, and her adventures included shipwreck, plague and treasure-hunting. She also gives descriptions of the Bedouin and other tribes of the Middle East

Memoirs of the Lady Hester Stanhope, Volume 1 : As Related by Herself in Conversations with her Physician by Charles Lewis Meryon( file )
1 edition published in 1845 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Charles Lewis Meryon (1783–1877) was the personal physician to the unconventional and adventurous Lady Hester Stanhope (1776–1839), who left England in 1810 to travel to the Middle East. She eventually settled in Lebanon and by the time she died no longer had contact with any Europeans. Meryon's Travels of Lady Hester Stanhope (also reissued in this series) recounted her journey during the first seven years he spent with her before returning to England to complete his medical training. Over the next twenty years, they remained in contact and he stayed with her on two more occasions before she died. In this three-volume work, first published in 1845, Meryon presents letters he received from her and recounts their conversations, giving a remarkable insight into the woman he describes as 'out of humour with all mankind'. Volume 1 covers events between 1823 and 1837, beginning with her letters imploring him to visit

The additional memoirs of Lady Hester Stanhope : an unpublished historical account for the years 1819-1820 by Charles Lewis Meryon( file )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
In 1845 and 1846 Charles Lewis Meryon published the two three-volume sets The Memoirs of the Lady Hester Stanhope and The Travels of the Lady Hester Stanhope, which is still the most important source for the early life and first travels of Lady Hester. Towards the end of his life he wrote the Additional Memoirs for the years 1819-1820, the manuscript of which has lain virtually untouched and unknown for the last 150 years. Recently brought to light and edited with an introduction by Mark Guscin, the Additional Memoirs contains invaluable and fascinating new information about the life not only of Lady Hester, covering in addition to the period 1819-1820 anecdotes and stories from the rest of her life, but also of Meryon himself, finally solving the mystery behind his lengthy and time-consuming journey back to the Lebanon in 1819 and the reasons why he left Lady Hester again almost immediately upon arrival. Many have speculated on the reasons for this journey and why it came to such an abrupt end, and now Meryon himself tells the whole story in his own words. The Additional Memoirs is essential eye-witness reading for anyone with an interest in nineteenth-century England and Europe, travel in the Middle East, and more specifically, the Stanhope family
