The desert and the sown : the Syrian adventures of the female Lawrence of Arabia by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )
89 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 854 libraries worldwide
"By the standards of any age, the life of Gertrude Bell (1868-1926) was extraordinary. During her travels in the Middle East, she rode with bandits; was captured by Bedouins; and sojourned in a harem. Her colleagues and friends included Winston Churchill, T.E. Lawrence, and Arabian sheiks. During World War I she worked for British intelligence and later played a crucial role in creating the modern Middle East." "Bell's adventurous career belied her privileged upbringing and sharply contrasted with an era when the parlor and the nursery marked the expected, conventional boundaries of an Englishwoman's life. (Still, it would take Bell a dozen years to be recognized by, and admitted to, the patriarchal Royal Geographical Society.)" "Passionate about Arabia, then an inhospitable land of nomadic and warring tribes under Turkish control, she wrote this now classic account of her 1905 trip across the Syrian Desert from Jericho to Antioch. To read it is to be transported."--Jacket

Iraq and Gertrude Bell's The Arab of Mesopotamia by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
"Gertrude Bell was one of a select group of Western Arabists who helped create the modern Middle East. She was arguably the single most influential individual in Iraq when, in the aftermath of World War I, the British attempted to create a nation out of regions that had long been different provinces of the Ottoman Empire. She was called upon to produce this succinct but insightful volume us a guide for the military officers and civil servants who were attempting to create an Iraqi government." "A long dispute over whether the volume was actually written by her is settled in Dr. Paul Rich's introduction. It not only is written by Bell, but the reader can see in what she chooses to emphasize just what her awn views are on the course that the development of Iraq should take."--Jacket

TRAVEL WRITING. Gertrude Bell traveller, scholar, archaeologist, spy was one of the most powerful figures in the Middle East in the 20th century. With T.E. Lawrence, she was a significant force behind the Arab Revolt and was responsible for creating the boundaries of the modern state of Iraq, as well as installing the Hashemite dynasty, with Faisal I as king, in Iraq and Transjordan. Her knowledge of the Arab world was forged through decades of travel and the relationships she built across Arabia with tribal leaders and kings, who referred to her as Umm al Mumineen, or Mother of the Faithful. In the winter of 1906, she undertook an often dangerous journey through Greater Syria - Damascus, Jerusalem, Beirut, Antioch and Alexandretta - and her portrait of the landscapes, people and customs of a part of the world that very few had explored at the time is now a classic of travel writing

His Majesty's government called for a report on this difficult period from the acting Civil Commissioner, who entrusted the preparation of it to Miss Gertrude L. Bell, C.B.E. India Office, 3rd December 1920."

The garden of heaven : poems of Hafiz by Ḥāfiẓ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
"Poetry is the greatest literary form of ancient Persia and modern Iran, and the fourteenth-century poet known as Hafiz is its preeminent master. Little is known about the poet's life, and there are more legends than facts relating to the particulars of his existence. This mythic quality is entirely appropriate for the man known as "The Interpreter of Mysteries" and "The Tongue of the Hidden," whose verse is regarded as oracular by those seeking guidance and attempting to realize wishes. A mere fraction of what is presumed to have been an extensive body of work survives. This collection is derived from Hafiz's Divan (collected poems), a classic of Sufism. The short poems, called ghazals, are sonnet-like arrangements of varied numbers of couplets. In the tradition of Persian poetry and Sufi philosophy, each poem corresponds to two interpretations, sensual and mystic. This outstanding translation of Hafiz's poetry was created by historian and Arabic scholar Gertrude Bell, who observed, "These are the utterances of a great poet, the imaginative interpreter of the heart of man; they are not of one age, or of another, but for all time." Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Gertrude Bell : the Arabian diaries, 1913-1914 by Gertrude Lowthian Bell( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Gertrude Bell's Arabian Diaries, published here for the first time, rank as one of the great travel narratives, carrying readers along on a desperate and heroic journey that foreshadows the emergence of the future imperial servant in Baghdad in the 1920s. Bell's adventures are the stuff of novels: she rode with bandits, braved desert shamals, was captured by Bedouins, and sojourned in a harem. Called the most powerful woman in the British Empire, she counseled kings and prime ministers. He colleagues included Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, who in 1921 invited Bell--the only woman whose advice was sought--to the Cairo Conference to "determine the future of Mesopotamia." She numbered among her closest friends T.E. Lawrence, St. John Philby, and Arabian sheiks. Editor O'Brien preserves Bell's elegant, vibrant prose, and includes her photographs and excerpts of the love letters she exchanged with a married British army officer.--From publisher description
