    From the Preface, regarding Lady Burton: "Death with its icy breath hung over her as her pen flew along the paper, and the questions constantly on her lips were "Shall I live to complete my task? Shall I live to tell the world how great and noble a man my husband was, and to refute the calumnies that his enemies have so industriously circulated?" TW

    "The amount of absolutely new information in this work is very large. Thus we are telling for the first time the history of Burton's friendships with Mr. F. F. Arbuthnot, Mr. John Payne, and others; and we are giving for the first time, too, a complete and accurate history of the translation of The Arabian Nights, The Scented Garden, and other works." TW

    "Four Years of Hope Deferred."(1852-1856) "Miss Arundells belonged by birth to the most exclusive aristocracy of Europe, the Catholic nobility of England, an aristocracy which has no parallel, unless it be found in the old Legitimist families of France, the society of the Faubourg St. Germain." (http://ebooks.adelaide.edu....)

"Burton's tomb fittingly reflects his life. It is built of stone but shaped like a Bedouin tent, though this common description is not entirely accurate. The tomb is actually modelled on a tent that Burton had made for his travels with his wife Isabel to Syria. Apparently it's most important attribute was that Burton could stand upright when inside. The tomb is located in Mortlake, South West London, and both Burton and Isabel now rest there."

By 1853, Muslim Arabia had for hundreds of years been a closed and secret world. No one who was not a Muslim was allowed to set foot in it. Most of those who made the attempt never lived to tell of the experience. Particularly forbidden to “unbelievers” were two towns most holy to the Muslims — Mecca and Medina. Burton managed to conceal his identity and became one of the only non-Muslim men to ever have been to Mecca and survive.His book "Pilgrimage to Al-Medinah and Mecca" details the trip.
