Notes
Content : "Although published separately, these volumes are the Egyptian and Nubian section of Roberts's great work, the other three volumes of which were published 1842-9, usually referred to as Roberts's Holy Land ... All six volumes are in fact often found together as a set ... It must have been originally the intention to issue the book under one title as volume I-VI, but there is no hint of this on the t.p."--Abbey, J.R. Travel, v. 1, p. 247.
