First edition, first impression, an offprint from The Year Book of Education (1954) and decidedly uncommon: not listed in Copac and OCLC locates only 16 copies in institutional libraries worldwide. Contents: The Training Problem of Aramco, The Training and Educational System, The Development of the Saudi Employee. The eminent petroleum geologist Roy Lebkicher (1895-1968) was described as “a brilliant and original educational thinker as well as an able and experienced executive” whose training policy at Aramco produced “outstanding success in technological development”. He joined Standard Oil of California as a petroleum geologist in 1924. Having made his first trip to Saudi Arabia in 1935, soon after the 1933 concession agreement between Standard Oil and the House of Saud, he was posted there permanently in 1952 as Director of Training at the Aramco headquarters in Dhahran (the name having been adopted in 1944). He co-wrote a number of works including the Aramco and World Oil: Handbooks for American Employees series (1952).

Octavo. Wire-stitched in the original pale blue printed wrappers. A little rubbed and some marginal staining to wrappers, contents a touch toned, else very good.
