What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Dustwrapper

First edition. Signed by the author to the front endpaper. Illustrated with eight plates and nineteen maps. Collated complete. A record of personal experience providing a fascinating picture of the wild and turbulent sons of the desert from the man who knew and understood them. Written by Lieutenant-General Sir John Bagot Glubb, known as Glubb Pasha by the Jordanians, a British soldier, scholar, and author, who has been described as an "integral tool in the maintenance of British control."

Condition

In the original blue cloth binding. Externally, very smart with minor rubbing to the extremities and the odd small mark to the boards. Original unclipped dust wrapper is also very smart with light wear to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean throughout. Minor age toning to the endpapers.

Very Good Indeed
