Arabia Felix, the Danish expedition of 1761-1767 by Thorkild Hansen( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 1994 in French and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A riveting account of a landmark expedition that left only one survivor, now back in print for the first time in decades. Arabia Felix is the spellbinding true story of a scientific expedition gone disastrously astray. On a winter morning in 1761 six men leave Copenhagen by sea--a botanist, a philologist, an astronomer, a doctor, an artist, and their manservant--an ill-assorted band of men who dislike and distrust one another from the start. These are the members of the first Danish expedition to Arabia Felix, as Yemen was then known, the first organized foray into a corner of the world unknown to Europeans, an enterprise that had the support of the Danish Crown and was keenly followed throughout Europe. The expedition made its way to Turkey and Egypt, by which time its members were already actively seeking to undercut and even kill one another, before disappearing into the harsh desert that was their destination. Nearly seven years later a single survivor returned to Denmark to find himself a forgotten man and all the specimens that had been sent back ruined by neglect. Based on diaries, notebooks, and sketches that lay unread in Danish archives until the twentieth century, Arabia Felix is both a comedy of intellectual rivalry and very bad manners and an utterly absorbing tale of high adventure. Arabia Felix includes 33 line drawings and maps"--

He aquí la saga de una nación que soportó siglos de guerras, revoluciones, dispersión, persecuciones, y pese a todo, logró mantener su identidad. El texto, lúcidamente escrito, está vívidamente ilustrado por una exuberante documentación gráfica. La palabra y la imagen se combian así para registrar los extraordinarios acontecimientos que marcan la evolución de un pueblo, cuya historia está íntimamente entretejida con el desarrollo de la civilización occidental. Nos es dado seguir sus huellas desde los días de Abraham a través de la esclavitud y el despertar en Egipto: somos testigos de la conquista de la "Tierra de leche y miel", del esplendor de los días del Reino, bajo David y Salomón, su caída, el exilio de Babilonia, para llegar a la destrucción del Templo de Jerusalén por los romanos. La subsiguiente dispersión del pueblo judío entre los países del Imperio Romano tuvo un profundo efecto, no sólo en su propi historia sino también en la vida intelectual y cultural de Europa, especialmente en los comienzos de la Edad Media. Actuaba como eslabón entre el mundo de la antigüedad clásica y las nuevas naciones que surgían en el Norte. Las Cruzadas trajeron la persecución de los judíos, su expulsión de ciudades y países, su existencia en los ghettos, su intensa concentración en su herencia religiosa y el horísmo en la defensa de su fe. La era del iluminismo trajo consigo la emancipación de los judíos y la liberación de un gran potencial de energías que estuvieron latentes a través de varias generaciones. El surgimiento reciente del Estado de Israel es la culminación de la urgencia de sobrevivir y de un sentido de destino, que fue el rasgo característico del pueblo judío a través de su larga y singular historia. Se trata de un relato de fascinante interés, que arroja luz sobre pasajes de la historia occidental que por mucho tiempo fueron sólo accesibles al estudioso especializado
