What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

The first edition of this work.

Rihani interviewed all the rulers of the Arab region. This important work was the first of its kind and is still considered one of the best and established Rhiani's reputation. It covers Bahrain, Aden, Kuwait, Asir and is both groundbreaking and informative on all of them, and often the first serious account of this period. 

Illustrated with a frontispiece, and thirty-one plates.

Collated, complete.

Written by Ameen Rihani.

Pencil inscription to the recto to the front endpaper. Label to the front pastedown.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. Light discolouration and some marks to the boards and spine. A little bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Front hinge is starting but firm. Pencil inscription to the recto to the front endpaper. Label to the front pastedown. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.

Very Good
