Titre complet: Views in Central Abyssinia with Portraits of the Natives of the Galla Tribes, taken in pen and ink under circumstances of peculiar difficulty, by T.E. , a German traveller, believed at present to be one of the captives there. With descriptions by Sophie F.F.Veitch.

“These interesting views of the highlands of Abyssinia are from sketches made, in the years 1853-54, by a German artist, and subsequently sent as a present to the Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem by Mr.Waldmeyer, one of his lay missionaries in Abyssinia, and now, unfortunately, a captive there.”

The spine has been expertly and carefully reglued using gutta-percha which was the original method of binding.Some spotting on the pages, a very nice copy in the publisher’s green moiré patterned cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and upper board.
