Overview

Arabia infelix or, The Turks in Yamen Originally published in 1915. The author George Wyman Bury [1874-1920] was linked with Leachman and Shakespear by T.E. Lawrence in his introduction to ""Arabia Felix"", as one of the great young Arabists. His official career was put off course by an unjustified charge of corruption. D.G. Hogarth supported Bury, who contributed to the Arab Bureau. In 1915, he was made political officer to the Red Sea Northern Patrol, and was closely connected with the Arab revolt. This account of a visit to the Yemen on the eve of the first world war gives a good picture of a country still nominally under Turkish rule. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
