Unfortunately, this publication does no service to the writer or to the reader. In fact this book is an insult to the memory of a distinguished explorer and anthropologist. Whoever published this volume (wisely, the publisher's identity is not given) should be thoroughly ashamed of it. It contains many typographical errors, sentences end in mid-paragraph, new paragraphs begin without capitals and many paragraphs are formatted so badly they are difficult to read. Burton's notes in other scripts, such as Greek or Arabic, are not reproduced. At the end of most chapters we have one or two large paragraphs taking up most of a page. These are apparently Burton's footnotes but no numbers are given. Nor are footnotes indicated in the main text.
Together these faults have completely destroyed Burton's work. They even destroy the credibility of those parts of the text that contain no production errors. Given the hundreds of errors in this book and the obvious negligence with which it has been published the reader cannot be sure that what he or she reads is what Burton wrote. This book cannot be recommended for any reason at all.
