MacGill; a Glasgow merchant, provides a history, customs and current economic state of Tunis. The Bey of Tunis, its hereditary ruler, had achieved independence from the Ottoman Turks, and the local representatives of the Western European powers were competing for influence and trading advantages in the region. The author expresses his opinions on the Bey, the courtiers, the social structure of the country and its numerous exports and manufactures. The work is seldom seen in the 1st edition.
