Abstract

Lady Isabel Burton (1831–1896) was the wife and partner of explorer and adventurer Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890), who famously said, on first meeting him when very young: ‘I will marry that man.’ Encouraged to write by him, Isabel wrote Inner Life because she wanted ‘to convey an idea of the life which an Englishwoman may make for herself in the East (Preface). Shying away from history and geography, she covered topics such as ‘A Day’s Shopping in the Bazars’, ‘A Friendly Evening at a Harím’, and ‘Village Squabbles’. This is a colourful lithograph of her rendition of ‘Our Desert Camp’.
