This vintage book is Bertram Thomas’s 1932 travelogue, “Arabia Felix”. It is a factual account of his epic voyage across the vast southern desert of the Arabian Peninsula from 1930-3. A fascinating page-turner that chronicles a stunning achievement likely never to be attempted again, “Arabia Felix” would make for a worthy addition to any collection, and constitutes a must-read for lovers of exciting non-fiction. Contents include: “A Propitious Start and an Early Check”, “At Dhufar: Anarchy, Treachery, and Hospitality”, “Skull-Measuring and Devil-Dancing”, “In the Qara Mountains: ‘Ain ar Rizat”, “In the Qara Mountains, Ancient Survivals and the Blood Sacrifice”, “The Qara Mountains. Hyenas, Faith Cures and Circumcision”, etc. Bertram Sidney Thomas (1892–1950) was an English Arabist and the first person from the West to cross the Rub' al Khali. We are republishing this classic volume in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
