(p.1) Introduction.
Description of Egypt

Jason Thompson

American University in Cairo Press

During the years that Jason Thompson was engaged in the overall Edward William Lane project, of which this edition of Lane's Description of Egypt is a part, Jason incurred scholarly debts to so many individuals that it long ago became impractical to list them all. A zealous attachment to the study of oriental literature, and a particular desire to render himself familiar with the language of the Arabs, and with their manners and customs, induced Jason to visit Egypt. But these were not his only motives. He had long entertained a wish to examine the antiquities of that most interesting country: and as he felt, even before he commenced his travels, that there was a probability of his publishing the observations that he might make.
