About this Item: Amman, no publisher, June 1934., 1934. Folio (205 x 325 mm). (1), 246-481 ff. With numerous genealogical plates printed in red and green (2 folding). Original printed flexible boards with cloth-reinforced spine. Rare history of the Emirate of Transjordan (today the Arab Kingdom of Jordan), then a British protectorate. The present second volume contains not only the first volume's index (which merely spans pages 246-272), but also, and crucially, an annotated directory of the tribes of the various districts of Transjordan, comprising extensive tables, genealogies, and introductory essays on each tribe. With a separate index to the tribes and a bibliography at the end of the volume. Major-General F. G. Peake (1886-1970), known to the Jordanians as "Peake Pasha", was the creator of the "Arab Legion", the territory's regular army. Upon his retirement in 1939 he was succeeded in his command by John Bagot Glubb. - Hectographed typescript, printed on one side throughout. No copy in British Library. OCLC 29109691.
