Item Description: London, C1959, 1959. First published London, Cresset Press, 1959. A4. pp. 85., recto only. Original cloth-backed pale blue card covers lettered black on upper cover. Two maps loosely inserted, one which is also reproduced in the text shows the Jewish State with the Meinertzhagen Line 1919 (conceived in view of the British Government's schemes to partition the Jewish National Home by severance of Transjordan) and the other (in French) shows the territories occupied by the Arab League. Blank compliments slip of the Institute of Jewish Affairs loosely inserted. Richard Meinertzhagen (1878 1967) was both an anti-semite and a Zionist, a successful military man with a ruthless streak who is now suspected of embellishing his career. Some of his claims have been discredited including entries in his Middle East Diary. He was also an ornthologist whose achievements have been called into question, after it was discovered he fabricated his findings. Covers a little creased and nicked, otherwise very good. Light wear otherwise very good. Bookseller Inventory # C22171

Item Description: The Cresset Press, London, 1959. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition, first printing. 8vo. 376pp. Blue cloth lettered and bordered in gold at spine. Minor production fault creases to the head of a number of leaves. Tiny bump to the tips of two corners. A very good copy in price-clipped, lightly faded, tanned and edgeworn dust wrapper with one miniscule closed tear and one slightly longer jagged tear with a little accompanying creasing. O'Brien F0722. Colonel Richard Meinertzhagen's diary of his time in the Middle East, much of which was later determined to have been falsified. Includes nearly thirty index references to T.E.Lawrence. "Meinertzhagen knew no half measures. He was logical, an idealist of the deepest, and so possessed by his convictions that he was willing to harness evil to the chariot of good. He was a strategist, a geographer, and a silent laughing masterful man; who took as blithe a pleasure in deceiving his enemy (or his friend) by some unscrupulous jest, as in spattering the brains of a cornered mob of Germans one by one with his African knob-kerri. His instincts were abetted by an immensely powerful body and a savage brain" - T.E.Lawrence writing in 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom'. Bookseller Inventory # ARC91061

Item Description: London: The Cresset Press., 1959. First Edition. Octavo. Bound in publisher's blue cloth with red title label to spine. Dust wrapper shows menorah and title to front cover, titles to spine, and review of "The Seat of Pilate" by John Marlowe to rear cover; unprice-clipped, originally priced 35 s. Binding is tight, with minimal shelfwear. Dust wrapper rubbed to top edge, including top of spine, with some fading to spine and covers. Colonel Meinertzhagen was a British solider and intelligence agent. Initially praised for his adventurous exploits, he was mired on controversy for most of his adult life. His views on Israel typify this conflicted character: a friend of Zionism, but apparently also an antisemite, this book recounts in diary form the part that Meinertzhagen played in the formation of the Palestine Mandate.
