The rapidly increasing prominence of the Australian colonies during the past ten or twenty years has led to the preparation of the volume of which this is the preface. Australia has a population numbering close upon five millions and it had prosperous and populous cities, all of them presenting abundant indications of collective and individual wealth. It possesses railways and telegraphs by thousands of miles, and the productions of its farms, mines, and plantations aggregate an enormous amount. It has many millions, of cattle and sheep, and their number is increasing annually at a prodigious rate.

L'Abrégé de l'Histoire des Voyages de Laharpe jouit d'un succès qui paraît croître de plus en plus; malgré le grand nombre de volumes dont se compose cet ouvrage estimé, il a été réimprimé deux fois dans un court espace de temps. Cependant le format in-8o, adopté pour ces réimpressions, ne satisfaisait pas toutes les classes de lecteurs. Il restait encore à faire une édition de cet ouvrage, qui réunît à la pureté du texte, la commodité du format, et qui fût à la portée de toutes les fortunes; nous croyons avoir atteint ce but en offrant notre nouvelle édition de l'Abrégé de l'Histoire générale des Voyages. Cet ouvrage est imprimé pour la première fois dans le format in-18, et nous croyons nous rendre agréables au public, en en faisant tirer également sur le format in-12; de sorte qu'on peut le joindre aux éditions qui ont été données dans les mêmes formats du Cours de littérature du même auteur. Nous avons corrigé un grand nombre de fautes échappées au dernier éditeur, quoiqu'il ait mis plus de soin que ses prédécesseurs, à l'impression de cet abrégé. Enfin nous ne négligeons rien pour que notre édition soit rangée au nombre de ces belles réimpressions que les presses françaises s'enorgueillissent de reproduire depuis quelque temps. MM. Firmin Didot ont gravé le caractère, M. Fain donne tous ses soins à l'impression, le papier sort d'une des premières fabriques de France. Le portrait de Laharpe, dont nous pouvons garantir la ressemblance, est gravé par M. Bertonnier, d'après le dessin de M. Devéria; les vignettes, au nombre de soixante, dont les unes représentent les sites, vues, costumes de chaque pays, retracent aussi les scènes historiques que l'on trouve dans le même recueil. MM. Larcher, Baquoy, Delvaux, se chargent de la gravure, tandis que MM. Victor Adam, Devéria, Martinet, en ont fait les dessins d'après les originaux de la collection topographique du cabinet des estampes de la bibliothèque du roi; l'atlas de 15 planches in-4o. est exécuté par M. Blondeau, graveur du roi.

John Gabriël Stedman (1744-1798) was kapitein in het leger van kolonel Fourgeaud en leidde militaire expedities in het binnenland tegen de weggelopen slaven, de marrons. In zijn boek uit hij kritiek op de Surinaamse maatschappij en vooral op de behandeling van de slaven. Zijn verhaal is een journalistiek verslag, met uitgebreide natuurhistorische beschrijvingen en tegelijk een meeslepende roman. Stedman vertelt over zijn liefde voor de slavin Joanna, de mogelijkheden en onmogelijkheden haar te ontmoeten en zijn pogingen om haar en hun zoon vrij te kopen. Stedmans boek is een indringende beschrijving van Suriname in de tijd van de slavernij. Het boek is geillustreerd met tientallen gravures, gemaakt naar schetsen van Stedman.  .

The following excursion was undertaken for several reasons: the first of which was, that though I had been many times in Paris before, yet I had not once been there since the Revolution, and I was desirous of seeing how far a residence of a few years in France might be practicable and agreeable; secondly, a Counter-Revolution, or, at least, some violent measures were expected, and I was willing to be there at the time, if possible; and lastly, I wanted to examine the gardens near Paris. I must here premise that I sent for a passport from the Secretary of State's office, which I knew could do no harm if it did no good, thinking I should have it for nothing, and obtained one signed by Lord Grenville, but at the same time a demand was made for two guineas and sixpence for the fees; now, as I have had passports from almost all the European nations, all and every one of which were gratis, I sent the pass back; it was however immediately returned to me, and I was told that',A passport is never issued from that office without that fee, even if the party asking for it changes his mind'. I paid the money, and that is all I shall say about the matter.

I returned to England in the Canterbury East India ship.

I joined the second battalion rifle brigade, (then the ninety-fifth,) at Hythe-Barracks, in the spring of 1809, and, in a month after, we proceeded to form a part of the expedition to Holland, under the Earl of Chatham. With the usual Quixotic feelings of a youngster, I remember how very desirous I was, on the march to Deal, to impress the minds of the natives with a suitable notion of the magnitude of my importance, by carrying a donkey-load of pistols in my belt, and screwing my naturally placid countenance up to a pitch of ferocity beyond what it was calculated to bear.

Er waren op het oogenblik, dat ik mij te Mahé bevond, 1661 kiezers ingeschreven op de kiezerslijsten, onder wie slechts enkele Europeanen, het besturend element, en twee of drie vertegenwoordigers van fransche huizen. In 1820 telde men er volgens een aanteekening uit dien tijd 35 Europeanen, 129 "menschen met hoeden", waarschijnlijk portugeesche kleurlingen, en 2616 "Indiërs". Het is merkwaardig, op te merken, dat er in genoemd jaar niemand trouwde onder de Europeanen en slechts een enkel paar onder de "menschen met hoeden", wat wel heel weinig was. Die bevolking was verdeeld over 336 huizen, waaronder de hutten blijkbaar waren meegerekend, en er waren toen 33 winkels, 52 cantines, 122 open terreinen en 3 velden nelly of rijst. De kolonie is niet veel in belangrijkheid vooruitgegaan.

Books of the Marvels of the World" or "Description of the World" (Divisament dou monde), also nicknamed "Il Milione" ("The Million") or "Oriente Poliano", but commonly called "The Travels of Marco Polo", is a 13th-century travelogue written down by Rustichello da Pisa from stories told by Marco Polo, describing the travels of the latter through Asia, Persia, China, and Indonesia between 1271 and 1291. It's been a very famous and popular book since the 14th century, creating the image of Marco Polo as the icon of the bold traveller. Presenting Marco Polo as an important figure at the court of the Mongol leader Kublai Khan, the book was written in Old French by Rustichello da Pisa, a romance author of the time, who was reportedly working from accounts which he had heard from Marco Polo when they were imprisoned in Genoa, having been captured while on a ship.

The Channel waters were calm and placid as the blue sky above them. Though late autumn the temperature was that of mid-summer. At Calais every one landed as jauntily as though they had just gone through the pleasure of a short yachting trip. As usual there were all sorts and conditions of men and women, and again the curious, the grotesque, the impossible predominated. They streamed across the new quay in a disordered procession, struggling with all that amount of hand-baggage which gets into everyone's way but their own, as they hurry forward to secure for themselves the best seats and most comfortable corners.

Notwithstanding the imbecile prejudices of the native Barbary Jews, such of them who adopt European habits, or who mix with European merchants, are tolerably good members of society, always endeavouring to restrain their own peculiarities. The European Jewesses settled in Mogador, are indeed the belles of society, and attend all the balls (such as they are). The Jewess sooner forgets religious differences than the Jew, and I was told by a Christian lady, it would be a dangerous matter for a Christian gentleman to make an offer of marriage to a Mogador Jewess, unless in downright earnest; as it would be sure to be accepted. Monsieur Delaport, Consul of France, was the first official person who brought prominently forward the native and other Jews into the European society of this place, and since then, these Jews have improved in their manners, and increased their respectability. The principal European Jews are from London, Gibraltar, and Marseilles. Many native Jews have attempted to wear European clothes; and a European hat, or coat, is now the rage among native Jewesses, who all aspire to get a husband wearing either. Such are elements of the progress of the Jewess population in this part of the world, and there is no doubt their position has been greatly ameliorated within the last half century, or since the time of Ali Bey, who thus describes their wretched condition in his days.

This book in fact, neither literal autobiography nor pure fiction. The author drew his material from his experiences, from his imagination, and from a variety of travel books when the memories of his experiences are inadequate. The three-week stay on which Typee is based takes place over the course of four months in the narrative. It captures extensively on contemporary accounts by Pacific explorers to add cultural detail to what might otherwise have been a straightforward story of escape, capture, and re-escape.

The Narrative of the Proceedings of Her Majesty's ship Samarang during her last Surveying Cruise. In describing people and countries hitherto unknown, no description given by the pen will equal one correct drawing. How far I may have succeeded must be decided by those who have, with me, visited the same places and mixed with the people delineated. How I found time to complete the drawings is explained by my not doing any duty on board at one time, and at another by my having been discharged into the hospital-ship at Hong Kong.

Après avoir parcouru les principales îles placées dans l'Océan atlantique vis-à-vis le continent africain, et dont les Européens se sont emparés à la même époque où ils commencèrent à reconnaître la côte occidentale de cette partie du monde, nous allons, en retournant un peu sur nos pas, suivre avec les voyageurs cette même côte, depuis le désert de Sahara jusqu'à Sierra-Leone, où commence la Guinée proprement dite. Avant de passer par le détroit de Gibraltar dans l'Océan qui baigne la côte occidentale d'Afrique, on trouve, sur les bords de la Méditerranée, les contrées connues autrefois des anciens, et qui forment ce que les modernes ont appelé Barbarie; Alger et son domaine, qui est l'ancienne Numidie; Tunis, qu'on croit être Carthage; Tripoli, la grande Syrte, Barca, tout ce qui composait les possessions romaines jusqu'au mont Atlas. Au-delà du détroit est le royaume de Fez, l'empire de Maroc, autrefois la Mauritanie Tingitane; Dara, Tafilet, pays gouvernés jadis par Syphax et par Bocchus, mais sous la dépendance ou la protection des Romains, qui avaient poussé leurs conquêtes jusqu'au désert. À l'orient, les Romains possédaient encore l'Égypte et la Nubie, et connaissaient quelques ports de la mer Arabique. La grande région qu'ils appelaient Éthiopie, et que nous nommons Abyssinie, ne leur était connue que de nom. Elle ne l'est guère davantage aux modernes, qui pourtant en ont fréquenté quelques ports, comme Adel, Zeyla, Souakem, etc. , mais n'ont que peu pénétré dans l'intérieur des terres. À l'égard de la côte orientale d'Afrique, que nous avons vu découvrir par les Portugais après qu'ils eurent doublé le cap des Tourmentes, et qui contient les royaumes de Mosambique, de Quiloa, de Monbassa, de Mélinde, tout ce qu'on appelle le Zanguébar et la côte d'Ajan, les commerçans de Tyr et de Phénicie y descendaient par la voie beaucoup plus courte de la mer Rouge, dans des temps dont il nous reste bien peu de traces. Nous avons vu que, par la même voie, les Arabes ou Maures de la Mecque, ceux de Barbarie, et plus récemment les Turcs, y venaient commercer quand les Portugais y arrivèrent. Mais, quand ces mêmes Portugais, quand les Anglais et les Français abordèrent en Guinée, ils n'y trouvèrent que des Nègres et des serpens.

Dans l’ « Histoire des voyages de Scarmentado » écrit en 1756 par Voltaire, le narrateur raconte ces différents périples et voyages à travers les pays. Dans cet extrait lenarrateur voyage en Hollande, en Espagne, en Turquie et en Perse, et dans chacun de ses pays il se retrouve persécuté à cause de ses opinions. N’étant pas informé des coutumes ou des façons depensées du pays où il est, le narrateur se retrouve dans des situation délicates. Il est ainsi victime de l’intolérance des personnes vis-à-vis de la religion. Ainsi une leçon implicite est soumise, celleque la religion est très importante pour les hommes, qu’on ne plaisante pas là-dessus, mais que cependant elle varie d’un pays à l’autre.

It is a travel history book. On hearing a recital of some adventures which had occurred to me during my long voyages, many of my friends have frequently begged of me to publish a narrative of them, which might perhaps be interesting. M. Alexandre Dumas was publishing, under the title of 'The Thousand-and-One Phantoms', a romance, one of the principal personages of which, in a voyage to the Philippine Islands, must have known me when I was residing at Jala - Jala, in the colony that I founded there. It must be evident that the lively romancist has ranked me in the category of his Thousand-and-One Phantoms.

Wenn eine Regierung eine jener Fahrten auf dem Weltmeer anordnet, durch welche die Kenntniß des Erdballes erweitert und die physischen Wissenschaften gefördert werden, so stellt sich ihrem Vorhaben keinerlei Hinderniß entgegen. Der Zeitpunkt der Abfahrt und der Plan der Reise können eingehalten werden, sobald die Schiffe ausgerüstet und die Astronomen und Naturforscher, welche unbekannte Meere befahren sollen, gewählt sind. Die Inseln und Küsten, deren Produkte die Seefahrer kennen lernen sollen, liegen außerhalb des Bereiches der staatlichen Bewegungen Europas. Wenn längere Kriege die Freiheit zur See beschränken, so stellen die kriegführenden Mächte gegenseitig Pässe aus; der Haß zwischen Volk und Volk tritt zurück, wenn es sich von der Förderung des Wissens handelt, das die gemeine Sache der Völker ist.

I should not like to ask an indulgent and idle public to saunter about with me under a misapprehension. It would be more agreeable to invite it to go nowhere than somewhere; for almost every one has been somewhere, and has written about it. The only compromise I can suggest is, that we shall go somewhere, and not learn anything about it. The instinct of the public against any thing like information in a volume of this kind is perfectly justifiable; and the reader will perhaps discover that this is illy adapted for a text-book in schools, or for the use of competitive candidates in the civil-service examinations.

This book is a Year's Journey through France and Part of Spain, 1777. A year's journey through france, and part of spain. As you are kind enough to say, that those letters which I wrote from this kingdom, nine or ten years ago, were of some use to you, in the little tour you made through France soon after, and as they have been considered in some degree to be so to many other persons, (since their publication) who were unacquainted with the manners and customs of the French nation, I shall endeavour to bring together, in this second correspondence with you, not only some of the former hints I gave you, but such other remarks as a longer acquaintance with the country, and a more extensive tour, may furnish me with; but before I proceed any further, let me remind you, of one great fault I was then guilty of; for though your partiality to me might induce you to overlook it, the public did not, I mean that of writing when my temper was disturbed, either by cross incidents I met with upon the road, or disagreeable news which often followed me from my own country into this.

It must not however be inferred, from any delay in publishing the present volume, that its contents are less worthy of notice than those parts which have already proved so interesting and instructive to a multitude of readers.

Extrait: Jusqu'à ce jour, toutes les relations des voyageurs qui ont décrit l'Égypte, ont été reçues avec avidité, et les éditions de leurs voyages ont été successivement et rapidement enlevées, ainsi que les traductions qui en ont été faites presque dans toutes les langues. Cependant les récits de ces voyageurs, et surtout de ceux qui avaient parcouru la Haute-Égypte, étaient si imparfaits; leurs moyens de visiter, d'examiner, et de représenter les monuments que ce pays recèle encore, étaient si bornés, que leurs relations servaient plutôt à exciter la curiosité qu'à la satisfaire.

In Brazil the land that was granted by leagues was to be won by inches from the hordes of savages who succeeded each other in incalculable multitudes, and whose migratory habits rendered it a matter of course for one tribe immediately to occupy the ground from which its predecessors had been driven. Hence the history of the early settlers in Brazil presents none of those splendid and chivalresque pictures that the chronicles of the Corteses, and Pizarros, and Almagros furnish. They are plain, and often pathetic scenes of human life, full of patience, and enterprise, and endurance; but the wickedness that stains even the best of them, is the more disgusting as it is more sordid.

The valleys of Aragua form a narrow basin between granitic and calcareous mountains of unequal height. On the north, they are separated by the Sierra Mariara from the sea-coast; and towards the south, the chain of Guacimo and Yusma serves them as a rampart against the heated air of the steppes. Groups of hills, high enough to determine the course of the waters, close this basin on the east and west like transverse dykes. We find these hills between the Tuy and La Victoria, as well as on the road from Valencia to Nirgua, and at the mountains of Torito. * (* The lofty mountains of Los Teques, where the Tuy takes its source, may be looked upon as the eastern boundary of the valleys of Aragua.

It's an interesting study of the period, in addition to the philosophical changes in Germany at that time. As an old servant, as confidant, counsellor, manager, and housekeeper, Barbara assumed the privilege of opening seals; and this evening she had the less been able to restrain her curiosity, as the favor of the open-handed gallant was more a matter of anxiety with herself than with her mistress. On breaking up the packet, she had found, with unfeigned satisfaction, that it held a piece of fine muslin and some ribbons of the newest fashion, for Mariana; with a quantity of calico, two or three neckerchiefs, and a moderate rouleau of money, for herself.

威尼斯是一個別緻地方。出了火車站,你立刻便會覺得;這裏沒有汽車,要到那兒,不是搭小火輪,便是僱”剛朵拉”。大運河穿過威尼斯像反寫的S;這就是大街。另有小河道四百十八條,這些就是小胡同。輪船像公共汽車,在大街上走;“剛朵拉”是一種搖櫓的小船,威尼斯所特有,它那兒都去。威尼斯並非沒有橋;三百七十八座,有的是。只要不怕轉彎抹角,那兒都走得到,用不著下河去。可是輪船中人還是很多,“剛朵拉”的買賣也似乎並不壞。

癸丑(公元1613年)之三月晦,自宁海出西门。云散日朗,人意山光,俱有喜态。三十里,至梁隍山。闻此于菟夹道,月伤数十人,遂止宿。 四月初一日 早雨。行十五里,路有岐,马首西向台山,天色渐霁。又十里,抵松门岭,山峻路滑,舍骑步行。自奉化来,虽越岭数重,皆循山麓;至此迂回临陟,俱在山脊。而雨后新霁,泉声山色,往复创变,翠丛中山鹃映发,令人攀历忘苦。又十五里,饭于筋竹庵。山顶随处种麦。从筋竹岭南行,则向国清大路。适有国清僧云峰同饭,言此抵石梁,山险路长,行李不便,不若以轻装往,而重担向国清相待。余然之,令担夫随云峰往国清,余与莲舟上人就石梁道。行五里,过筋竹岭。岭旁多短松,老干屈曲,根叶苍秀,俱吾阊门盆中物也。又三十余里,抵弥陀庵。上下高岭,深山荒寂,泉轰风动,路绝旅人。庵在万山坳中,路荒且长,适当其半,可饭可宿。

John Gabriël Stedman (1744-1798) was kapitein in het leger van kolonel Fourgeaud en leidde militaire expedities in het binnenland tegen de weggelopen slaven, de marrons. In zijn boek uit hij kritiek op de Surinaamse maatschappij en vooral op de behandeling van de slaven. Zijn verhaal is een journalistiek verslag, met uitgebreide natuurhistorische beschrijvingen en tegelijk een meeslepende roman. Stedman vertelt over zijn liefde voor de slavin Joanna, de mogelijkheden en onmogelijkheden haar te ontmoeten en zijn pogingen om haar en hun zoon vrij te kopen. Stedmans boek is een indringende beschrijving van Suriname in de tijd van de slavernij. Het boek is geillustreerd met tientallen gravures, gemaakt naar schetsen van Stedman.

The author traveled first to the Holy Land. She knew it was dangerous to travel alone and she thought that she might never return from her trip so she wrote her will just in case. She saw the pyramids, the Sphinx, the tomb of Queen Hatshepsut, Jerusalem, and Cairo. The journey took a little over ten months. She kept a journal during the trip and each night and wrote in pencil about her adventure during the day. In 1846 her journal was published in Austria. It became one of the most popular travel books in Europe.

He was naturally eloquent, both in illustrating and proving the reasonableness of his own opinions, and in converting others from their erroneous preconceived notions. Above all, he possessed that steady and persevering resolution, which not only enabled him to vanquish the greatest difficulties, but gave such appearance of success to every thing be promised or undertook, as secured the confidence of all who were under his command. As these extraordinary qualities would have distinguished him in any station of life, so they were remarkably useful in the present enterprise, by which he gained immortal reputation, although he lost his life before its completion.

This is a travel book. The account of the following journey was written a few days after its execution, while the author was confined to his chamber by the inconveniences he had suffered, and it was then penned for the gratification of his immediate friends, and without any view to publication. The partiality of friends, however, having permitted it, during his absence, to appear in the Analectic Magazine, for May 1820, it excited more attention than he could have anticipated, which has induced the author to correct the errors arising from haste and other sources, and to republish it in the present form.
