Item Description: Longmans, London, 1959. First edition. First edition. 46 plates, 8 maps to the text & folding map in pocket. xvi, 326 pp. 8vo. "I went to Southern Arabia only just in time." Rare signed copy in the dustjacket. Arabian Sands is Thesiger's first and most important work, recounting his crossing of the Empty Quarter under the aegis of the Middle East Anti-Locust Unit in 1946-7. Although brief reports of the journey were published in the Journal of the Royal Geographical Society in the late 1940s, it was only through the efforts of his friend Graham Watson and the publisher Mark Longman that Thesiger was persuaded to write a book-length account.For a decade, Thesiger had longed to explore the Empty Quarter and seized the opportunity presented by Owen Bevan Lean to accompany the Anti-Locust unit. Thesiger crossed the empty quarter twice: first in 1946-7, on a 2000 mile journey that began and ended at Salala on the south coast. He set again almost immediately in 1947, departing Manwakh well in Yemen and visited at Liwa Oasis and then to Abu Dhabi town. This included a brief imprisonment in Saudi Arabia. Arabian Sands includes accounts of both these crossings and is illustrated with Thesiger's own dramatic photographs.Thesiger, who had a revulsion to modern life, immersed himself in the country, made friends with the Arabs and travelled on foot and by camel. He states boldly in the introduction to this work, whatever their results "[future explorers] will never know the spirit of the land nor the greatness of the Arabs." Arabian Sands was received enthusiastically in the press and Thesiger himself thought it "his finest book" (ODNB). The Daily Telegraph stated: "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." Indeed, St John Philby described Thesiger as "probably the greatest of all explorers" (Maitland, 380) and Sir John Glubb regarded him "the last, and certainly one of the greatest, of the British travellers among the Arabs" (ibid.). Alexander Maitland, Wilfred Thesiger: the Life of the Great Explorer (2006) Fine original cloth, spine gilt, in very good dj, headcap chipped, some minor shelfwear 46 plates, 8 maps to the text & folding map in pocket. xvi, 326 pp. 8vo.

Item Description: Longmans, 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 Wilfred Thesiger on the title page, with a contemporary signature. Near fine in the original dust jacket which shows some wear to the spine. 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).

Lavishly illustrated with photographs and maps (including one in a pocket inside the rear cover). Thesiger was the last and probably the greatest of all the English explorers who traveled through the Middle East and this is his best book. He rejected his English upbringing and lived fearlessly among the Bedouins who occupied the desert, dressing as they did, eating what they did and traveling either afoot or with the aid of animals. Other than the natives, he is the only one known to have twice crossed the notorious Empty Quarter which constitutes the most forbidden part of the Arabian desert. Corners slightly bumped, else a fine copy in dust jacket of this momentous book. Bookseller Inventory # 0017
