Spine darkened, fragments of paper peel (dust jacket? along bottom edge, some unopened pages, tone, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover. ; "... the book will endeavor to explain shortly and accurately what this French colony really is, what its people are doing and thinking, wherein lies its future. There have been no aspirations to make of it a comprehensive guide-book or survey of the country's long history, neither has any attempt been made to criticize the French rule, or to compare it with the administration f other colonies. True facts have been set down as seen by one who has lived many years in the country, constantly studying all about him without confining himself to one area nor to one class of people. Living not only in the big cities, but also in the cultivated plains, in the desolation of the desert, and mixing with the French administrators, with business men, with the colonists, and visiting the Arabs in such intimacy that it is possible to tell of their daily life as it is really lived." ; 299 pages.
