Western Arabia and the Red Sea

London: Intelligence Division, 1946. June 1946. Hardcover. 659 pp, profuse ill, plates (many folding) and large pull out folding map in rear pocket. Part of the geographical handbook series. The purpose of these handbooks was to supply a vast amount of information on various parts of the world. ...and the final result shows that the compilers certainly met their goals. Excellent, lengthy bibliography in rear. This volume was in fact produced and printed for official purposes during the war of 1939/45. A beautiful copy save for a plate that notes it belonged to the Borough of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery. Reserve stock. There are very faint stamps on top/bottom and front edges and one on verso of title page but no other markings. And it would appear that the book sat in the Museum never read. VG+. Item #1973

Price: $450.00
