MORRIS, James. Sultan in Oman. London, Faber, [1957].

8vo. Original cloth with illustrated dust-wrappers (price-clipped); pp. 165, colour frontispiece, 2 sketch maps, black and white plates; apart from a little offsetting from endpapers with faint ownership inscription, marginal flaws and light rubbing to wrappers a very good copy.
First edition, rare with the wrapper. Together with Peter Fleming, who wrote the preface, James Morris had observed British forces securing Sultan Said bin Taimur's power against an uprising led by the Imam of Oman. The result is a fascinating travel book with reminiscences of Gertrude Bell, T. E. Lawrence, or Curzon.
