LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London: Macmillan, 1899. First edition. Hardback. A good copy . Small 8vo, blue cloth; xx (last blank), [4], 638 pp, frontis and 13 photo plates, 4 folding maps and 7 genealogical tables. Joints rubbed, spine ends a bit worn, cloth mildly flecked, front inner hinge split (not detached - bindings still quite firm), edges tanned, endpapers mildly foxed. An impressive little book with striking photographs. The genealogical tables are of particular interest as they are executed in a free and organic manner that seems to reflect the narrative importance of tracing descent to the Arab aristocracy. The tables are a refreshing change to the binary kinship maps generated by scientific social anthropology, they seem to convey a sense of time and distance that is destroyed in the static and abbreviated kinship schematics of Western social science. Clearly a solid and well researched book on a fascinating subject
