Book Description

A new illustrated edition of Doughty'sgreat travel classic first published in 1888; with an introduction by T. E. Lawrence (from the 1921 edition); foreword by Patricia Countess Jellicoe;glossary; numerous illustrations and photographs by Gertrude Bell, H. St. John Philby, Sir George Rendel, Captain William Shakespear, and others; Charles Doughty (1843-1926) spent two years among various nomad tribes and wrote in 1888 what would be the first comprehensive Western work on the geography of Arabia, in an attempt, as he says in the preface, to 'set forth faithfully some parcel of the soil of Arabia smelling of samn and camels'. His classic and justly famous account is a fantastic piece of travel writing that shows full understanding of the area, the people and all aspects of nomadic life in the desert.
