Travels of lady hester stanhope : forming the completion of her memoirs by Charles Lewis Meryon( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The adventurous and unconventional Lady Hester Stanhope (1776-1839) set off to travel to the East in the early nineteenth century. She had been hostess to her uncle, British Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger, and after his death she received a government pension and decided to leave England. Her personal physician Charles Meryon (1783-1877) wrote this three-volume memoir of their travels, first published in 1846. She had a reputation as an eccentric, but thought of herself as the 'Queen of the desert' and indeed achieved considerable influence in the places she travelled to. Eventually she settled in the Lebanon, where she lived out the remainder of her life. She dressed in men's clothes to allow her to go to places not considered safe for a lady, and her adventures included shipwreck, plague and treasure-hunting. She also gives descriptions of the Bedouin and other tribes of the Middle East
