Arabia and Syria

The Landscape / Architecture / Life Of The People

A very beautiful photographic record of full page photographs (in high quality photo gravure technique)
 featuring topography, remarkable sites, architecture and people of Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq,
Kuwait, Mesopotamia, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Covering many famous places from north like Diyarbekir in
Turkey or Aleppo in Syria to the arabian peninsula in the South like Sana'a or Mocha in Yemen to the east
like Muscat in the Oman.

This precious book was not affordable by too many people at that time.
And there is no other book of that time which comes close to the printing quality of that title.

The photographs are by famous photographers Lehnert and Landrock and Dr. Karl Gröber!

Photographs titled in English, Italian, German, French and Spanish.

From the series "Orbis Terrarum" , a series of early photobooks portraying the regions of the world.

Note: Shipping to United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia is no problem! You are welcome!
