Diary of a return journey from India, amply illustrated by photographs, undertaken in 1906 by the Hamburg merchant Alfred Stürken (1868-1925) through the Arabian Gulf to Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait. First separate edition, offprinted (with independent pagination) from the Proceedings of the Hamburg Geographical Society.

Inscribed by the author at the head of the title-page: "Mit besten Grüßen vom Verfasser". Somewhat browned throughout due to paper stock; lower corner of the first few leaves chipped without loss, otherwise very good.

Excessively rare: OCLC locates only three copies of the offprint, issued in a small press run for private circulation (National Library of Israel; Hungarian Academy of Sciences; Leiden).

OCLC 67794222.
