Dealer Notes
Daniel van der Meulen studied at the University of Leiden, where he attended lectures by the Arabist Christiaan Hurgronje. After an appointment as an inspector in the Dutch East Indies, in 1923 van der Meulen became consul at Jeddah, and he made various excursions from this base. He visited the Hadhramaut on the south east coast of Arabia, with the German geographer Hermann von Wissman, and the present work relates their journeys through the region.
