Hardcover in publisher’s non price-clipped dust-jacket. 217 pages. Bibliographic References, Index. First edition, first printing with full number line. A collection of eleven essays by the preeminent scholar of Middle Eastern Studies, dealing with history, European interact, etymology and even a none to kind book review of Edward Said’s “Orientalism”. No previous ownership marks. A clean, square, fresh and unmarked copy, appears unread and like new. Fine in a fine dust-jacket.
