Descripción:

Octavo. Original mid-blue sand-grained cloth with title gilt to spine, and gilt device to the front board, decorative frieze in black running across top and tail of boards and spine, floral-patterned endpapers in sanguine. Just a little rubbed, mild string notch to the top edges of the boards. An excellent copy. First edition. The son of a Yorkshire clergyman, Keane ran away to sea at 12, spending some time on a collier brig. "By the age of 18 he had acquired a second mate's certificate. He claimed to have become a certified officer in the P&O line and between 1873 and 1877 to have taken voyages to the Black Sea, the Arctic and China, and to have worked on a sugar plantation in British Guiana" (Howgego). In 1877 he presented himself to the British Consul at Jiddah, and informed him of his intention to visit Mecca. This he did under the name of Haj Mohammed Khan, "wandering the streets quite freely in a bright white tunic and a huge turban". However, after a number of close calls he proceeded to Medina, spending "ten days in the city itself", subsequently returning Britain "to write up his journey, told in such an entertaining style that it amply compensates for the author's lack of conventional scholarly attainments". Howgego IV, K4; Macro 1346. N° de ref. de la librería
