Octavo, folding map; contemporary half calf and marbled boards. A very good, clean copy.

First edition. "Lempriere, a surgeon at Gibraltar, was sent for by the favourite son of the Emperor of Morocco for medical attendance, in the belief that Christian physicians were able to cure any disease. He was promised every protection and a guarantee of expenses and good rewards and the release of certain Christian captives. He embarked from Gibraltar, Sept. 14, 1789, and safely reached his destination, though he was much pestered by the sick en route. His experiences in the harem were unique, as seldom was a European admitted to those precincts. The Emperor long delayed his departure for home, as he was not cognizant of the fact that Lempriere had been sent for." - Cox I, p. 391.
