Notes

First edition, presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "1er Lieutenant Myssen ?". Scarce with six locations on OCLC and only one on Copac (Oxford).

In the 1920s and 30s Thoumin, professor at the Damascus Military College, wrote several geographical works, focusing particularly on Damascus and Beirut. This book is a wide reaching survey of Western Asia, including Greater Syria, the Arabian Peninsular, Iraq, Cyprus and more. Thoumin later went on to publish a three volume work on the First World War, interviewing many people who had taken part in important events.
