The book is divided into sections: United States, Canada, and Pacific Ocean; Japan, China, and Cochin China; The Eastern Archpelago, Straits of Malacca, and Ceylon; British India; Egypt and Palestine; Europe.

William H Seward was an American secretary of State, although the book does not seem to mention that.

There is also an entry in the Nuttall Encyclopædia for William Henry Seward.
