152 pp., original decorated boards with cloth spine, front cover slightly soiled, title printed in red & black at front cover. Limited edition of 500 copies of which this copy is numbered 441. A rare study of the pre-islamic history of Arabia. ' Unfortunately, Philby did not realise that the books from which he was quoting were out of date and was indignant when John Murray the publisher turned him down. Accordingly, in 1946 Philby used a firm in Alexandria to print the book at his own expense and sent 500 signed copies to his friends. He hoped this would gain him recognition as an authority on pre-islamic Arabia but in 1948 at the 20 th century Orientalist Conference he realised that the majority of the hypotheses forwarded by him in this book were questioned and even abandoned by the majority of scholars. This rejection stimulated him to seek to prove his worth as a historian by finding evidence that the scholars did not know existed. In 1959 he started to revise the Background of Islam on the basis of Jacqueline Pirenne’s redating of Sabaean History'.
