A thousand miles up the Nile

EDWARDS, Amelia B.

London: George Routledge and Sons, 1891. SECOND EDITION. With frontispiece, title vignette, and many illustrations. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt lettering, embellishments, and image of a camel rider and pyramids, spine chipped and edges rubbed; interior excellent. With the book label of Spyros Tsilimparis on the paste-down and his signature on the fly-leaf and half title. Second edition. This remarkable work was written by an equally remarkable female traveler. Having enjoyed a successful career as a novelist in England, Edwards traveled independently to Egypt without a male chaperone and in the company of a lady friend. There she became fascinated with Egyptology and archaeology, subjects which she studied and promoted for the rest of her life. This second edition corrects "some of the historical notes by the light of later discoveries," but the narrative remains untouched. While much of the text recounts her delightful and often intrepid excursions in Egypt, Edwards was also keenly observant of her environment, commenting on the ethical implications of excavation, the antiquity trade, and the realities of colonial exploitation. Edwards (1831-1892), born in London, was a journalist, novelist, and Egyptologist. She published her first novel in 1855. She is credited with rousing popular interest and support for archeological work in Egypt at a time when it was still an emerging field. A founding member of the Egypt Exploration Fund along with Reginald Poole, Edwards also held several honorary degrees from schools including Columbia and Smith.

Amelia Edwards 1831 - 15 April 1892, English novelist, journalist, traveller and Egyptologist. In 1877, Edwards proceeded to write a vivid description of her Nile voyage, under the title of A Thousand Miles up the Nile. Enhanced with her own hand-drawn illustrations, the travelogue became an immediate best-seller. Robinson notes that this was "the first general archaeological survey of Egypt's ruins" and remains "one of the most inspiring travel books in the language." Edwards was one of a party, which, in February 1874, discovered and excavated the ruins at Aboo Simbel, in Nubia.
