AL-HABIB, Mohammed Ibrahim. Kuwait through the Dickson Family's Lens. Kuwait, National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters, 2019.
Oblong 4to. Original illustrated card wrappers; pp. 286; highly illustrated throughout, text in both Arabic and English, signed by the author; as new.
First edition. A wonderful publication on probably the most important Western resident of Kuwait, next to Captain Shakespear. Lieutenant Colonel Harold Richard Patrick Dickson, his wife Violet, and daughter Zahra Freeth don't need any introduction. The Kuwait historian Al-Habaib visited members of the family in England, interviewd them and had access to family photo albums, all of which constitutes the book which for the first time published this material.
