Description:

Scarce book. First Edition Studies in the Geography, People and Politics of the Peninsula with an account of Islam and Mission-work. 8 vo, pp. vi,434, (iv) adv.; with half title, portrait frontispiece of an Arab of Yemen, numerous illustrations on plates, some plans, maps (one folding), diagrams, plus one large coloured folding map, original brown pictorial cloth (expertly re-backed), original end-papers preserved, gilt title-lettering to spine; occasional very minor foxing; a good copy indeed, first issue of the first edition. Der Autor der sehr instruktiven, reich illustrierten Monographie über Arabien reihte sich in die direkte Linie jener Missionspioniere ein, die die arabische bzw. moslemische Welt für ihre Aufgabe auserkort hatten. Zwemer verbrachte zehn Jahre in diesem Teil der Welt. Obgleich das Buch vom Standpunkt eines Missionars geschrieben ist, entbehrt es keinesfalls an ethnologischer, geographischer, archäologisc her, kommerzieller und politischer Information. Keine deutsche Übersetzung! Written from a Missionary viewpoint, an account of the spiritual and geographical history of Arabia and Islam.
