History and Culture Around the Red Sea

    Albert Krammerer. La Mer Rouge L'Abyssinie et L'Arabie. Cairo: de L'Institut Français D'Archéologie Orientale, 1929-1952.

    First edition. Three quarto volumes in seven. Illustrated with dozens of maps and plates.

    Printed paper over boards on all but the two books of Volume I which were issued in printed wrappers. Some moderate soiling to all boards. Front hinge cracked to the second book of Volume II; rear joint broken and backstrip loose to first book of Volume II. Some tape repairs to the fragile and chipped wrappers of both books of Volume I; the two books of Volume I in original shipping boxes. Bookplates of previous owner. Overall, very good.

    Albert Kammerer, scholar and French Ambassador to Turkey (1933-1936), created for the Société Royale de Géographie D'Egypte this massive decades-long study of the Near East. The first two volumes of this series concern the medieval period of the lands on both sides of the Red Sea. The three books of Volume III examine the same region through the span of the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries. Seldom encountered complete. From the Professor John Ralph Willis Collection of Rare Africana.
