ADEN PORT TRUST. Information for Visitors to Aden. Aden, Printed at Messrs. Cowasjee Dinshaw & Bros' Press, [c. 1922].

8vo. Original printed wrappers, pp. 22; spine of wrapper a bit weakened, a few spots only here and there, a good copy of a rare item.
We found only one copy in libraries worldwide, in the National Library of Italy. Sir Tom Hickinbotham (1903-83), was the chairman of the trust and a political agent on the Arabian peninsula and probably the editor of this short history and description of the city, with useful hints for visitors. The publisher was the son of Cowasji Dinshaw Adenwalla, a Zoroastrian from Mumbai, and very successful businessman, who had his own floating pontoon in the port and funded the building of a mosque, named after him, and a fire temple.
