Parting the Desert: The Creation of the Suez Canal

Price: £18.00

Book Condition: Very Good


The building of the Suez Canal was the greatest engineering feat of the nineteenth century, but it was much more than just a marvel of construction. ' Parting the Desert' is both a transporting narrative and a window into the origins of the modern Middle East. The corners of the red boards are bumped and there is also a spine lean. The dust jacket shows light wear to its extremities and corners. A good tight copy.
