IRAQ - ʻIraq. Treaty with King Feisal signed at Baghdad, 13th January, 1926, with Explanatory Note. London, HMSO, 1926.

8vo. Self-wrappers; pp. 6; first page a little dusted, final page a little gold-stained, otherwise very good.
Very rare with no copies located via COPAC. After Iraq had become independent under British Mandate in 1922, and the Ankara treatise of June 5, 1926, which had 'settled' the Mossul Question, this treaty admitted Iraq as a member of the League of Nations. Emir Faisal, leader of the Arab revolt against the Ottomans during during the Great War, and member of the Sunni Hashemite family from Mecca, was more firmly established, but had to wait another six years to become king of a fully independent state.
