Fresh from a stint recruiting Albanians to fight the Cossacks in the Crimean War, Edward Shelley embarked for South America, to avoid tiresome (and embarrassing) Parliamentary hearings back home. Thus began a trip around the world over the next 52 months, as he searched for adventure and new scenes to explore, stopping at intervals to collect traveling money from home. Shelley found adventure in full measure, crossing the Andes, passing through revolution-ravaged Mexico, sleeping alongside an erupting Hawaiian volcano and following invading British and French armies into China; and even close brushes with death receive only laconic mention in his journal. Annotations of the journal typescript explain journal some obscure entries and provide the historical and geographical context for his travels.
