In Unknown Arabia
London, Macmillan, 1926. Large octavo, xx, 448 pages with 2 maps and 2 illustrations (listed as plates 61 and 62) plus 64 plates, a frontispiece portrait and a large folding colour map. Gilt-decorated cloth, top edge gilt; covers slightly flecked and marked, and a little rubbed at the extremities; an excellent copy. 'It was primarily in the interests of zoology [mainly ornithology] that Major Cheesman planned his recent expedition to an unexplored tract of Eastern Arabia ... but his activities were by no means confined to that sphere alone.... he has been able to make valuable contributions to our store of knowledge' in both geographical and archaeological matters. The narrative itself is 'a vivid, unvarnished record of desert travel, pursued often under the most trying circumstances' (Major-General Sir Percy Cox, in his foreword).
