In these early 1806 reports, printed during Seetzen's ongoing expedition, Seetzen describes his travels in Syria, Jordan, Palestine, and Arabia. The Frisian-born naturalist and explorer U. J. Seetzen departed in 1802 on a thoroughly planned expedition through Asia Minor, the Arabian Peninsula and Africa. His last report is dated November 1810; he was killed near Tais in the Yemen on Sept. 8, 1811.
