Le pays dont nous allons retracer l'histoire est la partie du continent africain qui s'étend depuis la limite occidentale de l'Egypte jusqu'à l'Océan Atlantique, et depuis la rive méridionale de la Méditerranée jusqu'au Soudan. Cette vaste contrée est désignée généralement sous le nom d'Afrique septentrionale, sans y comprendre l'Egypte, qui a, pour ainsi dire, une situation à part. Les Grecs l'ont appelée Libye; les Romains ont donné le nom d'Afrique à la Tunisie actuelle, et ce vocable s'est étendu à tout le continent. Les Arabes ont appliqué à cette région la dénomination de Mag'reb, c'est-à-dire Occident, par rapport à leur pays. Nous emploierons successivement ces appellations, auxquelles nous ajouterons celle de Berbérie, ou pays des Berbères.

Avant de quitter la rive du Nil, mon frère et moi, nous bûmes dans le creux de la main une dernière gorgée de son eau bienfaisante, en faisant le vœu de nous désaltérer un jour à ses sources mystérieuses, et nous nous éloignâmes de Kéneh, en Égypte, le 25 décembre 1837, pour nous engager dans le désert. Un prêtre piémontais, un Anglais et deux domestiques, Domingo et Ali, l'un Basque, l'autre Égyptien formaient, avec mon frère et moi, notre troupe aventureuse; le plus âgé d'entre nous pouvait avoir vingt-six ans, le plus jeune dix-sept.

The great work of Gibbon is indispensable to the student of history. The literature of Europe offers no substitute for The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It has obtained undisputed possession, as rightful occupant, of the vast period which it comprehends. However some subjects, which it embraces, may have undergone more complete investigation, on the general view of the whole period, this history is the sole undisputed authority to which all defer, and from which few appeal to the original writers, or to more modern compilers.

The increase of the towns of Manhattan, as, for the sake of convenience, we shall term New York and her adjuncts, in all that contributes to the importance of a great commercial mart, renders them one of the most remarkable places of the present age. Within the distinct recollections of living men, they have grown from a city of the fifth or sixth class to be near the head of all the purely trading places of the known world. That there are sufficient causes for this unparalleled prosperity, will appear in the analysis of the natural advantages of the port, in its position, security, accessories, and scale.

A Footnote to History: Eight Years of Trouble in Samoa is a historical non-fiction work by Robert Louis Stevenson. describing the Samoan Civil War. Robert Louis Stevenson arrived in Samoa in 1889 and built a house at Vailima. He quickly became passionately interested, and involved, in the attendant political machinations. These involved the three colonial powers battling for control of Samoa - America, Germany and Britain - and the indigenous factions struggling to preserve their ancient political system. The book covers the period from 1882 to 1892. The book served as such a stinging protest against existing conditions that it resulted in the recall of two officials, and Stevenson for a time feared that it would result in his own deportation. When things had finally blown over he wrote to Sidney Colvin, who came from a family of distinguished colonial administrators, "I used to think meanly of the plumber; but how he shines beside the politician".
