'Her remarkable intellectual abilities and masculine demeanour make Persian Pictures, her first publication on an Eastern subject , all the more interesting.' - Geoffrey NashWhen Gertrude Bell's uncle was appointed Minister in Tehran in 1891, she declared that the great ambition of her life was to visit Persia. Several months later, she did. And so began a lifetime of travel and a lifelong enchantment with what she saw as the romance of the East, which evolved into a deep understanding of its cultures and people. This vivid and impressionistic series of sketches, her first foray into writing

"Gertrude Bell the well-known explorer and archaeologist began her extensive travels in the Near East in 1892.

The desert and the sown : the Syrian adventures of the female Lawrence of Arabia by Gertrude Lowthian Bell ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By the standards of any age, the life of Gertrude Bell (1868-1926) was extraordinary. During her travels in the Middle East, she rode with bandits; was captured by Bedouins; and sojourned in a harem. Her colleagues and friends included Winston Churchill, T. E. Lawrence, and Arabian sheiks. During World War I she worked for British intelligence and later played a crucial role in creating the modern Middle East." "Bell's adventurous career belied her privileged upbringing and sharply contrasted with an era when the parlor and the nursery marked the expected, conventional boundaries of an Englishwoman's life. (Still, it would take Bell a dozen years to be recognized by, and admitted to, the patriarchal Royal Geographical Society.)" "Passionate about Arabia, then an inhospitable land of nomadic and warring tribes under Turkish control, she wrote this now classic account of her 1905 trip across the Syrian Desert from Jericho to Antioch. To read it is to be transported."--BOOK JACKET

Iraq and Gertrude Bell's The Arab of Mesopotamia by Gertrude Lowthian Bell ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gertrude Bell was one of a select group of Western Arabists who helped create the modern Middle East. She was arguably the single most influential individual in Iraq when, in the aftermath of World War I, the British attempted to create a nation out of regions that had long been different provinces of the Ottoman Empire. She was called upon to produce this succinct but insightful volume us a guide for the military officers and civil servants who were attempting to create an Iraqi government." "A long dispute over whether the volume was actually written by her is settled in Dr. Paul Rich's introduction. It not only is written by Bell, but the reader can see in what she chooses to emphasize just what her awn views are on the course that the development of Iraq should take."--Jacket
