Bedouin Tribes of the Euphrates. Edited, with a Preface and Some Account of the Arabs and Their Horses by W. S. B. - Lady Anne Blunt, Wilfred Scawen Blunt

1879 - Harper &, New York - First American Edition
‘Fortunately we are too old travellers to be easily impressed by tales of lions and robbers, even supported, as they were in this instance, by the authority of special correspondents of The Times.’

First American edition of Lady Anne Blunt’s intrepid excursion to the Euphrates, Nejd and the Nafud desert. Based primarily on her journals and letters, and edited by her husband, this is a testament to the beauty and culture found in the heart of Central Arabia, accompanied with a folding colour map, a folding chart of Arabian thoroughbreds, and twelve engraved illustrations from Lady Blunt’s own sketches.

‘To find out how the Bedouin lived, Lady Anne lived like one herself: she became a temporary nomad, riding the two thousand miles from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf for the most part in Arab dress, and without guides or the usual caravan. This was quite an innovation, and prompted Blunt to dub his wife ‘the first bona-fide tourist who has taken the Euphrates road'. - Jane Robinson,
Wayward Women.
