Library stamps/marks/labels/slip, some page creasing, rubbed, otherwise light wear.. Solid copy.; "The narrative constitutes a personal saga of tenacity and perseverance in the face of daunting odds - blindness, the demands of French academic disciplines, the acquisition of new languages, the vicissitudes of the First World War and the jostling hopes and fears of a strenuous and sensitive ambition. Written with a simple directness, as an old man's recounting of his decisive years, it makes a significant document for the student of Egyptian affairs of this century." ; Arabic Translation Series of the Journal of Arabic Literature; Ex-Library; Vol. 4; 165 pages.
