Isaac Taylor (1829-1901) was an English philologist and clergyman. "Narratives of Egyptian travel being already sufficiently abundant, I have not attempted to add another to the list. The scope of this volume is wholly different. It consists, for the most part, of notes of conversations with Egyptians on politics and religion. // I went to Egypt, the head-quarters of Islam, in order to investigate the truth of certain assertions which have of late been freely made as to the barbarism, ignorance, profligacy, and intolerance of Mahommedan nations. My inquiries were facilitated by the fact that some of my pleas for a better mutual understanding between Christians and Mohommedans had been recently reproduced, with appreciative comments, in the vernacular journals of Cairo, Beyroutm and Constantinople.
