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

102 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 899 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"--

"The first book in the trilogy, Coast of Slaves, deals with Danish Commerce on the Gold Coast initiated by a seizure of Swedish trading lodges in 1659 by a Swede who switched from his nation's to Danish service. Afterwards the Danes built Chrianstiansborg Castle and other trading forts like Fort Fredensborg in Ningo, Augustaborg in Teshie, Prensdesteen in Keta, and Kongensteen in Ada. Christiansborg was the seat of Danish administration in the Gold Coast and still remains the seat of government of independent Ghana."--BOOK JACKET
