(p.71) Chapter IX. Booʼlaʼck.
Description of Egypt

Jason Thompson

American University in Cairo Press

This chapter gives an account of the distant view of the Egyptian metropolis and its environs: the Nile being at its highest point. This chapter also discusses the general appearance of Boo'la'ck, the principal port of the metropolis. This port has now a more respectable appearance, towards the river, than it is described to have had when Egypt was occupied by the French. This chapter talks about the population, mosques, manufactories, and printing-office of Boo'la'ck.

Keywords:   Egyptian metropolis, occupation, Nile, Boo'la'ck, French
