[Aden album]. Naylor, D. A. R. Aden Trip 1958.

Small oblong folio (392 x 272 mm). 148 original silver gelatin and colour photographs, ca. 48 x 70 to 86 x 125 mm, the majority captioned in white ink, plus 22 commercially produced prints and postcards, tipped in to 20 leaves of black card. Bound in contemporary lacquered boards with a painting of the crater at Aden and a map of the Arabian Peninsula to upper board.


A comprehensive album documenting a Royal Air Force officer's five months at Aden. Compiled by squadron leader D. A. R. Naylor, it covers the expected territory of billets and beach days, but also several interesting views of the town, including backstreets "where the bargaining is done" and racing meets at Khormaksar. The racing images are particularly interesting with several handsome photographs of the Arab horses.

Spine secured with string tie. A few prints removed, extremities a little chipped and scuffed, one string tie missing, otherwise very good.
