National Proverbs: Arabia.
Philadelphia: David McKay, [c.1913] - Small octavo. Original pictorial paper wrappers. London publisher's ink stamp (Cecil Palmer & Hayward) to title page. Wrappers browned, and slightly chipped and marked, contents toned, occasional spotting, stronger front and back. Half-title and vignette title printed in red and black, the text in a red frame throughout. First US edition of this instalment in the popular series by London publisher Frank Palmer. The colourful, often rather opaque sayings listed give the agreeable impression of having been literally translated from the Arabic. The US edition is untraced in libraries; for the London edition Copac and OCLC trace three copes in the UK, and 13 world-wide.
