Beschreibung:

This "New and Definitive Edition", second printing of 1943, features both a new preface by Doughty and an introduction by T. E. Lawrence, whom the book had profoundly influenced, and who, in turn, brought the book to a new generation of readers. Like Lawrence, Charles Montagu Doughty (1843-1926) was drawn to the desert, and then eloquently brought the desert to his readers, by improbable chance and determination. Following graduation in 1865, Doughty resolved to write an epic of early Britain, but instead became "the most important British explorer of Arabia and one of Britain's greatest travel writers." (ODNB) Unable to obtain funding for an extended Middle East journey or passport documents from Britain or Ottoman Damascus, he proceeded anyway, the trip lasting nearly two years and chronicled in Travels in Arabia Deserta, first published in 1888. As would Lawrence decades later, Doughty travelled on foot and by camel, enduring great difficulties and developing admiration for the Bedouin way of life. Doughty’s work was praised, but out of print and ostensibly little read by the time Lawrence was a young man. T.E. Lawrence (1888-1935) achieved fame from his remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." Before this fame, Lawrence was employed at an archaeological dig in Northern Syria after graduating from Oxford. In 1911, Lawrence took a solitary walking journey through Syria. Heralding the experience and writing that became Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the settings and people engaged Lawrence’s observational sensitivity, while the journey tested his physical endurance. Before his trek, Lawrence wrote to Doughty for advice and read Arabia Deserta. "Lawrence was strongly influenced by Doughty’s… style and by Doughty’s courage in following the Bedouin through the desert… without any of the privileges and comforts of a European traveler. Doughty… would become a friend and admirer of Lawrence." (Korba, p.166) Lawrence later undertook shepherding a new, 1921 edition of Doughty’s Arabia Deserta, aided by Lawrence’s own fame and his long introduction, "which would be his clearest and most eloquent description of Bedouin life and Arab culture." (Korba, p.508) Lawrence’s admiration for Doughty is clear: "I have studied it for ten years, and have grown to consider it… a bible of its kind." Lawrence closed his Introduction with words applicable to Seven Pillars: "To have accomplished such a journey would have been achievement enough… Mr. Doughty… made the book justify the journey as much as the journey justified the book, and… he will not soon find his rival." After Lawrence died and Jonathan Cape published Seven Pillars, Cape published a 1936 "New and Definitive Edition in Two Volumes" of Arabia Deserta in format matching Seven Pillars, with heavy, brown cloth binding and tan dust jackets printed black. This is the second, wartime printing of 1943. Condition is very good plus in very good dust jackets. Both bindings are clean and unfaded with bright spine gilt. The contents are clean with no spotting. Maps (including the large, color, folding maps) and plates are intact, the brown top edge stain is unfaded, the untrimmed fore and bottom edges are clean, and the sole previous ownership marks are the same previous owner name and "1947" date inked on each front free endpaper. A laid-in 1953 Listener tribute to King Ibn Sa’ud by Sir Ronald Storrs has left transfer browning at pages 8-9 of Vol. I. The dust jackets are complete apart from neatly rectangular excision of the prices from the lower front flaps. We note some overall soiling, light wear to extremities, and faint creasing to the upper Vol. II spine. Both dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers.
