Edward Bawden in the Middle East by Nigel Weaver( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
"This book brings together forty-five of Edward Bawden's watercolours from World War II, now housed in the Imperial War Museum collection and many published here for the first time, to produce a fascinating insight into Bawden's view of the Middle East. Alongside these evocative images the text traces Bawden's life and career, in particular his time as an Official War Artist; a chapter by Robin O'Neill sets the political context in which the allied forces and Bawden found themselves during the war, and sketches the drastically changed political scenery since then; finally, we hear from Bawden in his own words through two articles originally published in The Geographical Magazine in 1945"--Jacket

The text is amply illustrated by both illustrations and photographs, and is aimed primarily at a younger audience. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in zoology and the physics and biology of motion."--Page 4 of cover
Here are set forth the histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus; that men's actions may not in time be forgotten nor things great and wonderful, accomplished whether by Greeks or barbarians, go without report, nor, especially, the cause of the wars between one and the other by Herodotus( Book )
3 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 93 libraries worldwide
Herodotus was a Greek historian who was born in Halicarnassus, Caria and lived in the fifth century BC. Herodotus is often called The Father of History, as he was the first writer to collect his materials systematically and critically, and to then arrange them into a historical narrative. The Histories, the only work produced by Herodotus, is thought to be the world's first history book. The book is an investigation of the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars. - Amazon

Revolt in the desert by T. E Lawrence( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
The Arab Revolt of 1916-1918, when the disparate tribes of Arabia rose up as one great force to defeat an empire, was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of the Middle East and a pivotal element of the Middle Eastern arena of World War I. It sounded the death knell for the Ottoman Empire and paved the way for a new colonial power in the region - the British. It was T.E. Lawrence, a young army officer with a brilliant military mind and unmatched knowledge of the region and the Arab people, who - alongside the charismatic Faisal I - led the Revolt. These were epic events that changed the shape of the Middle East and affected Lawrence for the rest of his life. His magnificent first-hand account of the period is now a classic of 20th century literature
The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia by Samuel Johnson( Book )
3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
Johnson's adaptation of the popular oriental tale displays his usual wit and perceptiveness; sceptical and probing, his tale nevertheless suggests that wisdom and self-knowledge need not be entirely beyond reach. This new edition relates Rasselas to Johnson's life and thought and to politics, society, and the global context of the Seven Years War. --from publisher description
