        TRAVELS IN ARABIA DESERTA, With an Introduction by T. E. Lawrence

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1936. 2 volumes. Scarce First Edition, First Issue of the 1936 "New and Definitive Edition" with the introduction by T. E. Lawrence. Portrait frontispiece in first volume, both profusely illustrated with maps, plans, and collotype plates, some folding, and including large folding maps at the inside of the rear covers of both volumes. 4to, publisher&#146;s original brown polished buckram with spines lettered in gilt. 674; 696. A fine and very handsome set, internally bright and fresh, the cloth and bindings in very pleasing condition with only extremely slight mellowing at the spine panels. ONE OF THE GREATEST WORKS OF TRAVEL EVER WRITTEN IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. ARABIA DESERTA is perhaps one of the best-known classics of exploration and travel. Few writers of any genre have worked such magic or mischief on the English language as Doughty. He disapproved of Victorian style, and mingled his own with Chaucerian and Elizabethan English and Arabic.<br> But whatever the style, the result is quite possibly the finest book on Arabia ever written. We will let another Arabist, Lawrence, speak on Doughty&#39;s behalf: "I have talked the book over with many travellers, and we are agreed that here you have all the desert, its hills and plains, the lava fields, the villages, the tents, the men and animals. They are told of to the life, with words and phrases fitted to them so perfectly that one cannot dissociate them in memory. It is the true Arabia, the land with its smells and dirt, as well as its nobility and freedom. There is no sentiment, nothing merely picturesque, that most common failing of oriental travel-books. Doughty&#39;s completeness is devastating. There is nothing we would take away, little we could add. He took all Arabia for his province, and has left to his successors only the poor part of specialists. We may write books on parts of the desert or some of the history of it; but there can never be another picture of the whole, in our time, because here it is all said..." (- from the Introduction).
