PHILBY, H. St. J.B. Across Arabia: From the Persian Gulf to the Red Sea. London, RGS, December 1920.
8vo. Original printed wrappers; contained in an issue of the Geographical Journal; pp. 446-468, plates after photographs, lithographic folding map, printed in three colours; a very clean and fresh copy.
Philby set out from Bahrain to the south west, travelling via Riyadh and Taif to Jeddah. The result is a fascinating illustrated travelogue and as always with this genre of literature, it contains the best map of the period for this part of the Arabian peninsula.
