The book sustains creasing to the front which looks interestingly like lighting over the picture of the pyramids and landscapes. Some soiling to covers, a line of ink has been rubbed in the back description. Remnant of an old price tag on the inside cover. Crease to the spine. Date not noted, however, may be the 1945 edition. Otherwise, intact with clean pages. (Fair/No Jacket.) 190pp. Lavishly illustrated with photographs. "The dramatic saga of the search for arabian oil. True historical adventures rich in action and drama.More thrilling than a fiction novel.A Great Arab king.A New Zealand adventurer.An American philanthropist.An astute finance minister.A headstrong pilot.A lovesick geologist.A rugged wildcatter.A Bedouin tribesman.A North Dakota greenhorn.thrown together in: The Searh for Arabian Oil.'the best history of any action is the experience of the men who lived it.'. Discover! is a story richin drama, confilict and humor: an oil -well fire out of control, a tragic mid-gulf exploxion, bombs falling out of a moonlit sky. Above all, it is the story of men- the men who came to Saudi Arabia in 1933, bringking the skills and strenghts of another world, and the proud men of the desert awaiting with grave concern the impact that this vital discovery would have on their time-honored ways.".

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
