"Having for some years felt the insufficiency of the information given by the unauthorized and self-constituted Dragomans to travellers on the Nile, and finding with one or two striking exceptions how limited is their knowledge of facts relating to the history of the antiquities in Upper Egypt and Cairo, Messrs. Thos. Cook and Son have arranged with Dr. E. A. Wallis Budge, Keeper of the Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities in the British Museum, to compile the following pages, which they have much pleasure in presenting to every passenger under their Nile arrangements on their Tourist Steamers and Dahabiyahs."
