Reviews - What do customers think about Our Trip to Burmah: With Notes on that Country (Itineraria Asiatica: Burma)?

Encyclopedic work on Burma in 1875   Mar 21, 2005
This is not a book you read for adventurous tales. The author, Surgeon General Gordon of the British army in India, dryly records his experiences and compiles a large number of facts he collected about the country during an official reconnaisance mission.

Much of this book could only be of interest to a specialist as the author lists, among other things, species of forest trees and palms, poisonous snakes, sea shells, and fish of Burma, dissertates on the economy and finances of the country, its government and its history. All in all, it's more of an encyclopedia than a travel book. I give the book 4 stars because it includes a day-to-day account of the author's travels in Burma, many good illustrations, drawings, and photographs, ethnological information on the hill tribes, and notes on the remote parts of the country -- most of which are still pretty unknown and inaccessible.

The general reader will have little interest in the book, but people like me with an unquenchable desire to plow through old books about exotic places and enjoy the observations of long-dead and obscure writers will find at least some parts of the book to be interesting.
