Sand-buried ruins of Khotan : personal narrative of a journey of archæological & geographical exploration in Chinese Turkestan by Aurel Stein( Book )

1 edition published in 1903 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1900 and 1901, the Hungarian-born archaeologist Marc Aurel Stein (1862-1943) made the first of several significant trips through Central Asia. In 1903, he published this account of his journey from Calcutta to London via the deserts of Chinese Turkestan. The text is richly illustrated with photographs of locations on the route followed by Stein's party, as well as of the people they encountered and many of the artefacts they excavated in the vicinity of the ancient oasis town of Khotan. Stein intended his book to be accessible to non-specialists, and his descriptions of the many important archaeological discoveries, such as Sanskrit texts of Buddhist scriptures, are interspersed with compelling human details and anecdotes about traversing the challenging terrain of eastern Central Asia. The work of an indefatigable explorer, this book sheds light on the spread of Graeco-Buddhist culture along the Silk Route

Orientations by W. Somerset Maugham( Book )

1 edition published in 1899 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Somerset Maugham was born on 25 January 1874 and was to become a playwright and novelist of staggering talent. Losing both his parents at age 10, he was raised by a paternal uncle. Maugham eventually trained and qualified as a doctor. The initial print run of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth, published in 1897, sold out so rapidly that Maugham gave up medicine to write full-time. His life was certainly full as the short biography at the end of this book will attest to, but it is also a life full of marvellous works and dedication to his art as 'Orientations' reveals
With the Beduins : a narrative of journeys and adventures in unfrequented parts of Syria by Gray Hill( Book )

1 edition published in 1891 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the Middle East was the crossroads between India and Europe. It was a time of great activity, as diplomats, merchants, soldiers and explorers saw at first hand the lives of the great families, the forbears of the founders of the modern states. They recorded their experiences; the intrigues, the codes of honor, and the austerity of life in the desert, and made a significant contribution to the West's knowledge of the Middle East at that time. Until now, these books have remained rare despite the fame of their authors, available only as collectors' items. The Folios Archive Library series now makes these historical accounts accessible to a wide audience. The series will be of great value to historians, to students of the region or period, and to armchair adventurers. First published in 1891, With the Beduins: A Narrative of Journeys and Adventures in Unfrequented Parts of Syria is the record of three of these trips, made in 1888, 1889 and 1890. The majority of the work deals with the situation of the Bedouin tribes of the region. A fourth and final section consists of folklore and stories from the oral tradition as recorded by Hill

1 edition published in 1893 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Illustrated with 1 frontispiece and 25 photogravures from negatives by J.M. Cameron.

Cameron or photographed from paintings by G.F. Watts. The edition was limited to 400 numbered copies, 150 of which were for sale in the U.S. This posthumous publication differs from no. 164 in its highly professional illustrations in contrast to the erratically manufactured albumen prints used to illustrate Tennyson."--The Truthful Lens : A Survey of the Photographically Illustrated Book, 1844-1914 / Lucien Goldschmidt and Weston J. Naef. New York: Grolier Club, 1980
