Memoir, to accompany a Chart of the South Coast of Arabia from the Entrance of the Red Sea to Misenát, in 50º 43’ 25” E.’ An article contained in two issues of The Journal of the Royal Geographical Society of London, Volume 9, part 1, 1839, pp. 125-156 & Vol. 15, part 1, 1845, pp. 104-160.
London: John Murray, 1839 & 1845. - First editions. 8vo. pp. [iv], 116 [NB: lacking pp. 117-124], 125-162, 16 (ads.) & cxi, 184, 16 (ads.); two folding maps relating to each part of Haines's article, three folding maps relating to other articles in these issues; minor age-toning, else very good in the original printed wrappers, minor wear to spines. Stafford Bettesworth Haines led a party aboard the Palinurus in the 1830s to survey the almost unknown southeast coast of Arabia. These two articles, separated by six years, contain Haines's full account of the findings of the survey, with two accompanying maps. Among the members of the party was James Wellsted, who during the course of the survey explored the island of Socotra, and also proceeded into the Arabian peninsula as far as the Rub' al Khali (Wellsted's journeys were described in a separate article printed in the Journal).
