Saudi Arabia by the First Photographersby William FACEY, Gillian GRANT
The photographs in this book were taken between 1860 and 1950, at a crucial period just before the ancient way of life in the region was swept away. The selection draws on all the known photographic collections, from the earliest travel photographers, through to the 1950s. These remarkable images are accompanied by historian William Facey's excellent text which places them in their historical context, plus detailed commentary on photographic techniques by photographic archivist Gillian Grant.
