Seen in the Yemen

£24.99

Product description

Green boards with gilt title and dust jacket in very good condition and minor shelf-wear. Book in near fine condition with minor dents and clean, crisp and tightly bound throughout the block. The volume is designed to emulate Freya Stark's earlier classic, Seen in the Hadhramaut, published by John Murray in 1938. Beginning with reminiscences of Dame Freya, the author recalls the time they spent together in Yemen, her musings on the past, and their mutual devotion to Leica cameras. He goes on to give a brief account of Yemen's history and geography, and describes his adventurous rediscovery of the remaining ancient Jewish community around Sa'dah in the far north. All this is brought alive in his extraordinary images, taken on his own wanderings and also on journeys with Dame Freya and other noted Arabian travellers such as Wilfred Thesiger and Dame Violet Dickson. The prints are introduced by a short description of those notable 1930s screw-thread Leica cameras used by so many early explorer-photographers.
