The New York Times published his obituary on its front page, referring to him as "a great traveler, both on land and paper." He was a poet, literary critic, translator, and a travel writer of great renown. This is his magisterial account of his voyage up the Nile through Egypt and the Sudan in 1851. Though many 19th century writers wrote about Egypt, Taylor captured exquisite details of life and antiquities and he went much farther up the Nile than most writers. Considered one of the premier travel writers of his day, he was known to the wide public and to many of his famous contemporaries. If you've been to Egypt, you'll treasure his descriptions of familiar places. If you've never been, he'll take you along. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.

This volume contains 123 documents which illustrate the early history of the American Presbyterian Congo Mission and its struggle for human rights in the Congo from 1890 to 1918. The documents, many of which have never previously been published, are crucial to a full understanding of both the work of the Presbyterian Mission and its impact on the social, political, and religious life of the Congo. The book is divided into four parts. Part One documents the founding and early history of the Presbyterian Mission from 1890 to 1898. Part Two documents the deterioration of social conditions in the Congo under King Leopold, and the reform campaigns initiated by the American Mission in Britain and the United States. Part Three consists of documents related to the 1909 libel trial of William M. Morrison and William H. Sheppard, the principal leaders of the American Mission. Part Four documents the Mission's reaction to continuing human rights abuses, particularly religious persecution, under Belgian rule to 1918. The documents - translated chiefly by Winifred K. Vass - are annotated and the volume contains an introduction and an index.
