Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber Sponsors Publication of the Book ‘Travellers in Arabia’

In 2006, Sheikh Mohamed Ben Issa Al Jaber sponsored the book ‘Travellers in Arabia’, an important visual record of early British travellers in the Arabian Peninsula.

The book, commissioned by HRH Prince Turki Al Faisal and sponsored by MBI Al Jaber, is composed of material originally gathered for an exhibition in Curzon House, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in London. In addition to well-known figures such as H. St. John Philby and T.E Lawrence, the book profiles the contributions to the study and recording of the early Kingdom by lesser-known explorers, including some formidable females. Beautiful early photographs and delicate watercolours form the illustrations, which also includes excellent maps and short accounts of their visits to the peninsula, alongside captions and commentaries by author Eid Al-Yahya.

In the foreword of the book, MBI Al Jaber explains his enthusiasm for the project, “It is a great pleasure to make this fascinating archive accessible to a wider audience through the publication of this book. Today’s world is changing at a rapid pace, and we must be mindful of preserving our history and traditions for future generations.”
