LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
William Heinemann Ltd, publishers, London - first edition, 1967. hardcover, 6½" x 10", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. Shelf-wear to board edges. GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Thirty-three b&w photographs, 3 maps, chronology, bibliography, and index. This is a deeply sensitive portrait of Damascus past and present, from a writer who settled down to live with a poor Arab family (on the biblical Street Called Straight), and who describes the city within a framework of history. Of all Levantine cities, it is perhaps still the most oriental and the least understood, for Damascus proves herself more fascinating than the myth which surrounds her.
