First and only edition, the first half concerning the maritime geography and history of Qatar and its surrounding islands, with a discussion of the history of pearl-diving in the region; the second is a detailed account of marine life around Qatar (the author being a marine biologist by training). Scarce, only four copies in libraries worldwide and none in the UK or Gulf.

Quarto. Original black boards, titles to spine and front board gilt, blue and white endbands. With the photographic dust jacket. Text in English and Arabic. Profusely illustrated with colour photographs and maps throughout the text. Extremities very lightly bumped, negligible pale marking to rear board, hinges split. A very good copy in the bright dust jacket with a small chip to head of spine.
