Item specifics

Condition: Very Good : Split the cost with friends
A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. No obvious damage to the book cover, with the dust jacket (if applicable) included for hard covers. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Some identifying marks on the inside cover, but this is minimal. Very little wear and tear. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections. See all condition definitions- opens in a new window or tab
Seller notes: The book is in Very Good++ condition, with only slight storage cover scuffs and spine edge scuffs. All the color is sharp, clear, and unbleached. The inside pages are in new condition.

This is "Holaku's Return" by Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Sultan ibn Muhammad al-Qasimi (Ruler of Shangah, or Sharjah, one of the United Arab Emirates).  The book is in Very Good++ condition, with only slight storage cover scuffs and spine edge scuffs. All the color is sharp, clear, and unbleached.   The inside pages are in new condition.  It might be in this condition if purchased in a bookstore off the shelf, but in an abundance of caution, I won't call this new condition.   There is a duplicate of the cover art and a clear, historical color map showing the Middle East political conditions in 1210 and the direction of military movements by all major constituents. It is 48 pages + cover, and is the 2004 English Edition published by the Sharjah Centre for Intellectual Creativity, General Egyptian Book Organization. It is a presumed first English edition. The first Arab editions were published in 1998.   Printed in the United Arab Emirates.

The English edition is an extremely rare edition, with no copies on sale anywhere in the world or in any library accessible by my search engines at the time of listing.  I am unworthy to interpret the meaning of the play, so I will show you the Sultan's own description in the book's Prologue:

"Through my readings in the history of the Arab nations I have found that what had happened to the Abbasid Kingdom before its fall, is quite similar to what is happening now to our Arab countries as if history is repeating itself.  Therefore, I wrote this play from a historical perspective for a painful reality.  All the incidents, places and names of characters in this play are authentic and every term mentioned in this text is a real indicator that elucidates what is happening in the Arab Nations."  - Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi

Here is a link to the Sultan's personal website, English edition, where you can find a comprehensive biography of this educated and respected man, and the largest list of his publications I could find anywhere.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
By submitting your bid, you'll be contractually committing to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder.
