Dealer Notes
Benson was a Fellow of the RGS, and from his Preface, it appears that this booklet was distributed at his lectures. It describes his voyage from Southampton to Buenos Aires with stops at Pernambuco and Rio da Janeiro, his passage across the Andes by train, to Valparaiso. The booklet is scarce - a variant edition is held by Yale, but this version appears to be unrecorded.
