Book Description: Longman's, London, 1959. First edition of this work that ranks as one of the greatest travel books of the 20th century. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Thesiger on the title page. Fine in the dust jacket showing light wear. Map unopened in the inside pocket of the rear pastedown. Though educated at Eton and Oxford, Wilfred Thesiger was repulsed by the softness and rigidity of Western life-"the machines, the calling cards, the meticulously aligned streets." In the spirit of T. E. Lawrence, he set out to explore the deserts of Arabia, traveling among peoples who had never seen a European and considered it their duty to kill Christian infidels. His now-classic account is invaluable to understanding the modern Middle East. "Following worthily in the tradition of Burton, Lawrence, Philby and Thomas, [Arabian Sands] is, very likely, the book about Arabia to end all books about Arabia" (The Daily Telegraph, London).

Book Description: London: Collins, 1990, 1990. Octavo. Original black cloth, title gilt to the spine. With the dust jacket. A very good copy in price-clipped jacket. Frontispiece and 40 plates, 8 of them double-page, 8 maps to the text, some full-page. Originally published in 1959, this the second Collins edition, with an additional, and telling, one-page preface describing Thesiger's return to the region in 1977, and again in 1990. This copy signed on the title page. This was Thesiger's first book and "and, in his opinion, his finest" (ODNB) "During the years that I was in Arabia I never thought that I would write a book about my travels Seven years after leaving Arabia I showed some photographs I had taken to Graham Watson and he strongly urged me to write a book about the desert. This I refused to do The following day Graham Watson came to see me again, and this time he brought Mark Longman with him. After much argument the two of them persuaded me to try to write this book. Now that I have finished it I am grateful to them, for the effort to remember every detail has brought back vividly into my mind the Bedu amongst whom I travelled, and the vast empty land across which I rode on camels for ten thousand miles" (Introduction).

Book Description: Longmans, 1959, 1959. 1st edition. Hardcover. A fine copy of the book, with beautifully clean endpapers and pages, and all maps and b/w photographs present. The dustjacket is unclipped, a little paled on the spine, and has had some very minor restoration at the extremities. Thesiger's account of his travels around the great Empty Quarter of Southern Arabia has become a classic of travel literature, and the book is accompanied by the rare June 1949 issue of the Royal Geographical Society's Journal, in excellent condition in blue wrappers as issued, in which Thesiger describes (in 26 pages) and illustrates (in photographs and a detailed fold-out colour map) his journey through western and northern Rub al Khali, an article which directly heralded the publication of Arabian Sands, a decade later. (The Journal also contains a short article by H St John Philby titled 'Two Notes from Central Arabia'.) Terrific, unique duo of items. Bookseller Inventory # PSHB6040
