Further Details

In original cloth-covered boards. Fold out map at rear, diagrams (most in the run of the text) and crisply-reproduced photographs, all as called for. With three appendices and an index. Philby’s final volume of his account of his time in Arabia in 1917 and 1918. “I was, I think, the very last European to sojourn in the Wahhabi Arabia before the advent of the motor-car”. He offers a view of the country, and of Ibn Saud himself, some years before the coronation of Ibn Saud and the establishment of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Condition: Boards bumped, internally clean, crisp and sound; the map and photographs are in excellent condition. This copy misses being classed as Very Good because of staining to the rear board, and some fraying of the joint between that board and the spine. Photographs available.
