EARLY PHOTOGRAPHS OF MECCA
by Witkam, Jan Just
This facsimile edition of 40 magnificent photographs was originally published in 1889 in the Bilder Atlas. It includes photographs from the classic two-volume work on Mecca by the Dutch orientalist and islamologist Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, as well as twenty photographs of the additional fourth and last volume also published in 1889 (there were not any photographs in the 3rd volume). The facsimile addition is accompanied by an extensive commentary by Jan Witkam, professor of Arabic studies at Leiden University.
