BeschreibungExcerpt from Our New Way Round the World
The last rail has been lain between the Atlantic and the Pacific, and the locomotive runs from ocean to ocean.
A few months hence the waters of the Mediterranean and Red Seas will mingle together through the Suez Canal, and a new way for trade and travel will thus be completed round the world.
This volume contains notes of observation along the route in Egypt, India, Malacca, China, Japan, and California. So much has been written in regard to Europe, that the lines of travel only have been indicated between London and Alexandria.
Observation in so large a field, embracing so many objects, has compelled us to abridge the material at our command in the preparation of this volume.
We have barely alluded to matters of great moment. Our aim has been to bring before the reader such facts, scenes, and incidents as will enable him to obtain a comprehensive idea of the countries with which we are to have intimate relations in the future, and to point out routes of travel to those who contemplate a voyage around the world.
