ECLECTIC REVIEW,

FOR JANUARY, 1822.

Art. 1. Travels in Palestine, through the Countries of Bashan and

Gilead, East of the River Jordan: including a Visit to the Cities of Geraza and Gamala, in the Decapolis.' By J. S. Buckingham, Member of the Asiatic Society, Calcutta, &c. 4to. pp. xxvi, 554. Price 31. 138. 6d. London. 1821. ALL that learned speculation and research could do to illus1 trate the topography of Palestine, has been accomplished; and yet, after all the erudite labours of Reland and D'Anville, with all the light which the details of ancient and modern Travellers have thrown upon the subject, there is scarcely any part of the world, certainly none of comparable interest, respecting which our information is so meagre, perplexed, and unsatisfactory. Michaelis complained, that our travellers never venture across Jordan. Dr. Seetzen * and Mr. Burckhardt are the only

* In one of the cells in the convent at the foot of Mount Sinai, Mr. Fazakerley, in 1811, found a paper giving the following account of Dr. Seetzen's journey through Palestine.

Le 9 d'Avril, 1807, U. I. Seetzen, nommé Mousa, voyageur 'Allemand, M.D. &c. est venu visiter le couvent de la Sainte Cathe• rine, les monts d'Horeb, et de Sinai, et de la Saint Catherine, après « avoir parcouru toutes les provinces orientales anciennes de la Pa. • lestine; scavoir, Auravitis, Trachonitis, Gaulonitis, Paneas, Batanæa, • Decapolis, Galaaditis, Ammonitis, Amorrhitis, Moabitis, jusqu'aux • frontieres de la Gebalene (Idumæa), et après avoir fait deux fois • l'entour de la Mer Morte, traversé, le desert de l'Arabie Petreè, • entre la ville d'Hebron et le Mont Sinai par un chemin jusquà ' ce temps lá inconnu. Après un séjour de dix jours il continuoit

son voyage pour la ville de Suez.' This,' adds Mr. F.,' is rather pompous, but Dr. Seetzen is, unquestionably, a traveller of great enterprise. He has been seven or eight years in these countries, and his experience, and habits, and knowledge of Arabic, qualify him in a remarkable degree for the pursuits in which he is engaged. The Arabs know him well by the name of Mousa.'
