About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Twelve Secrets of the Caucasus.

Description:

(price-clipped) [book is tight and clean with only minor shelfwear, light age-toning to fore-edge, small vintage price sticker (from The White House, San Francisco) on rear pastedown; jacket shows moderate wear and a few tiny nicks along the top and bottom edges, minor paper loss at spine ends]. (endpaper maps, frontis. author photo) "Rich with the color of the East, Essad-Bey's book is at once a blending of sensational adventure and magnificent yarns and a document of folk-lore and research into the lives, both past and present, of the most astounding races of the Twentieth Century." The author himself, the subject of Tom Reiss's 2005 biography "The Orientalist," was quite a character: born Lev Nussimbaum, he was a Jew from Azerbaijan who transformed himself into a Muslim prince in Nazi Germany, having earlier escaped the Russian Revolution in a camel caravan; writing as "Essad Bey" and "Kurban Said," he became a celebrated adventurer and author of the classic novel "Ali and Nino." And that ain't the half of it. Very scarce in the original jacket. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Bridges Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 248 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.8in.Essad Bey, the sickly son of an oil millionaire from Baku, Azerbaijan, receives permission from his father to spend the summer with his milk brother (that is, with whom he was nursed by the same Caucasian nanny) Ali Khan, passing the holiday in his home village in the wild Caucasus. So the two set out, under the custody of a wise attendant, into an archaic world in which chivalry counted more than buying power and poets were more highly regarded than princes - into a country in which, as a kind of curiosity shop of world history, all that is outlived and forgotten was loyally preserved. This is Essad Beys second book, which was first published in English in 1931. In it the author draws upon his Oriental imaginative powers, conjuring a vast panorama of the Caucasus, its people and customs. The result is a fresh and densely atmospheric work, even if not always laying claim to scientific accuracy. Often adding a touch of imagination, the author succeeds in bringing the heart and soul of this archaic world to life, which he had himself experienced and learned to love as a child. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9783929345377
