Detailed Product Description
London, Faber and Faber, 1973, 1st edition 332 pp, b/w photos. Brown cloth hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

St. John Philby spent much time in Arabia, with one foot in the Muslim world and one foot in the Western world, in Britain. Philby of Arabia is a full-scale, and fascinating, biography of this strange man of extremes. Elizabeth Monroe, who knows both his British and his Arab families, was a historian of the modern Middle East.

Harry St John Bridger Philby was an inspiration for Wilfred Thesiger who was one of the few explorers to literally follow in Philby's footsteps, crossing the empty quarter of Saudi Arabia by camel. He is mentioned in Thesiger's classic Arabian Sands.



Prince Feisal: The English have a great hunger for desolate places. I fear they hunger for Arabia.

T.E. Lawrence: Then you must deny it to them.

Prince Feisal: You are an Englishman. Are you not loyal to England?

T.E. Lawrence: To England and to other things.

Prince Feisal: To England and Arabia both? And is that possible? I think you are another of these desert-loving English.





Jackson Bentley: What is it, Major Lawrence, that attracts you personally to the desert?

T.E. Lawrence: It's clean.
