Nathaniel Spencer was in fact a pen name, his real name was Robert Sanders, who was born in Perthshire, Scotland, in about 1727.
This travel guide was partly based on his own travels but also drew on the travel writings by John Ray, Daniel Defoe, and John Pennant.
Robert Sanders, AKA Nathaniel Spencer, was impoverished when he died of a lung complaint in 1793.
