Notes: Kainbacher; from book #2137 "Wanderungen durch die Kustenlander des Mittelmeeres, ausgef in den Jahren 1845, 1846 und 1847." This work was never completed. It describes Barth's travels in the coastlands of northern Africa from Morocco to Alexandria in the years 1845-7 before his expedition into the Sahara. Henze describes the book as 'one of the most scholarly books ever written on the coastlands of North Africa. It concentrates on the northern regions of Tunesia and Libya and 'is the first to throw full light on the history and geography of that region' (translated from Henze). - Henze I, 176, Embacher 21 ff., Kainbacher I, 16, Eigl.
