Two volumes, 8vo. Half-titles, plates and in-text illustrations, publisher's advertisements at end of vol. I, folding map in the rear pocket of vol. I; scattered foxing, one or two closed marginal tears, splits to folding map. Later quarter green morocco over green cloth covered boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, second, third, and fourth gilt-lettered; corners bumped, some rubbing to cloth, original pictorially gilt dark green cloth bound into each volume. 


First edition. "Travels in Arabia Desert... is an unrivalled encyclopaedia of knowledge about all aspects of nineteenth-century and earlier Arabia... Sir Richard Francis Burton praised the book's scientific knowledge and its style... So reliable was the book's anthropology of the Bedouin peoples and its topography, that British intelligence mined it for information during the First and Second World wars.
