Cyprus as I saw it in 1879

SIR SAMUEL WHITE BAKER.
Cyprus as I saw it in 1879. London, 1879

The climate of Cyprus is extreme in temperature during the months of June, July, August, and until the close of September; throughout the greater portion of the island the treeless surface absorbs the sun's rays, and during the night radiates the heat thus obtained, which raises the thermometer to 90° before sunrise: while at noon it occasionally marks 100° beneath the shade.
