Seventh Edition. "In 1843 Warburton made an extended tour of Syria, Palestine and Egypt. He wrote accounts of his travels for the Dublin University Magazine, then under the editorship of Charles Lever, who persuaded him to make a book out of them. The work achieved great popularity; seventeen editions appeared by 1880. It enjoyed even greater success than Eothen, which had been dedicated to Warburton by [Alexander] Kinglake, a life-long friend. Warburton dedicated his own work to Richard Monckton Milnes.'
