About this Item

Complete set of "Mission Archéologique en Arabie," Fathers Jaussen and Savignac's pioneering archaeological expedition to northern Arabia:After a little over a century, Fathers Jaussen and Savignac's pioneering archaeological expedition to northern Arabia remains a scholarly landmark. The six books in three volumes by Father Raphael Savignac (1874-1951) and Father Antonin Jaussen (1871-1962) were published between 1909 and 1922. They are the result of their missions undertaken in 1907, 1909 and 1910. The first two volumes relate the authors' expedition from Jerusalem to Madâ'in Sâlih and al-'Ulâ. They are mostly devoted to their travel story, archaeological excavations and epigraphy. The supplement to Volume II contains ethnological notes taken during the second expedition in 1909. These notes concern Fuqara', a nomadic group from Northwest Arabia (around Madâ'in Sâlih and al-'Ulâ). The third book was to be published together with the previous two, but the outbreak of WWI made the sending of the manuscript to France difficult, which explains the delay in publication. In the last volume the authors provide the first photographs of the castles of Qusayr 'Amra, Qasr Tûba and Qasr Kharâna, which were visited during the three expeditions. These sites had already been visited and studied by A. Musil in 1907, but Jaussen and Savignac add a lot more important information, as well as new accurate plans.- Tome I : De Jérusalem au Hedjaz Médain-Saleh (mars-mai 1907), Paris, Ernest Leroux (1909): Quarto.
