'Mr. Stevens has a ready pen, he writes brightly, and has kept his eyes open, as was indeed essential during his long rice His book, with its admirable illustrations, is far more entertaining and * informing" than the majority of travellers' tales, ^oi its sketches of the ways and manners of Orientals of many varieties are drawn and coloured with intelligence.'

Hoskihg Post.

'We have read this volume with keen zest and pleasure. It is deeply interesting, and tells us much about countries ;hU« known ; much, indeed, that has not been told before. The daring wheeler records his experiences and adventures wilb sach simple, straightforward, and unaffected manliness, that it is not until the reader stops to think, that he perceives the courage displayed, the extent of the undertaking, and the alarming nature of the dangers encountered.' Land And Water.

V Part I., 1 SAN FRANCISCO TO TEHERAN,' can still be obtained, price i6s.t with over 100 Illustrations, of which the Guardian says:—

'We have found Mr. Stevens' adventures very amusing. . . . Hut it was on his travels through wilder regions that Mr. Stevens encountered the adventures which make his book worth reading. After a variety of strange experiences, soae a* which are well depicted in the clever illustrations which accompany his book, he reached Teheran, further than which lb* book does not take us, but we hope some day to have an account of the same.'
