MECCA -- GERVAIS-COURTELLEMONT, (J.). Mon voyage a la Mecque. Par., 1896. (4), 236 pp. W. front., lge-fold. panorama & 30 text-ills. Cont. hcf. (Spine chafed/dam., joints split, back side loosening, corners bumped, marg. a bit stained at the beginning, a bit browned/foxed). Rare first edition. Jules Gervais-Courtellemont (1863-1931), a convert to Islam, was one of the very few Western visitors to Mecca during his time. The classic account of his pilgrimage is of special interest due to the numerous illustrations drawn after photographs by the author and documenting buildings that have survived only greatly changed or which have disappeared altogether.
