But As The Reader Of This Volume Cannot Reasonably Be Supposed To Have Constantly At Hand, For Immediate Reference, The Two Former Portions Of Our Author's Works, A Map Is Here Given, In The Construction And Delineation Of Which Mr. Sydney Hall Has Attended To Every Suggestion Offered By The Editor:

At whose recommendation the names of places are spelt after Burckhardt's manner, however different from that more usual among us.

[Thus in the map as in the letter-press of this volume, Mekka might have been spelt Mecca; and Hejaz, Jidda, Nejed, would as well express the proper sounds of those words as Hedjaz, Djidda, Nedjed; and at the same time approximate more closely to the original Arabic orthography, by which our English j (as in Jar, James, &c.) is represented without the assistance of a d; although the prefixing of this letter to the j might prevent a Frenchman from pronouncing it as in jour, jamais, &c.]

By the editor's advice, also, several places situate beyond the Eastern limits of Hedjaz are included in this map; since Burckhardt, although he did not visit them himself, has given some original itineraries, in which they are mentioned.

That those places do not belong to the region properly denominated Hedjaz, is evident; but how far this region extends eastward cannot easily be determined; and the same difficulty respecting it occurs in various directions. The editor, that he might ascertain by what boundaries we are justified in supposing Hedjaz to be separated from other provinces of Arabia, consulted a multiplicity of authors, both European and Oriental.
