The American Women's Guide to Kuwait

American Women's League of Kuwait. Kuwait Yellow Pages Directory.

[Kuwait], National Printing Press, 1976.

Small 8vo. III, 53 pp., printed on rectos only. With 3 plans of Kuwait in the text and one folding plan of Kuwait and its suburbs. Original printed wrappers.


Exceedingly rare yellow pages for Kuwait, compiled for English speakers by the American Women's League in Kuwait, founded in 1963, presumably in its first edition.

Includes references for air conditioning repair, art galleries, car rental and sales, barbers and hairdressers, embassies and consulates, exterminators, oil companies, tennis schools, and "oriental handicrafts". The plans show the commercial center of Kuwait, Fahd Al-Salem Street, and the Salmiyah quarter. The folding plan indicates the location of hospitals, English, American and French schools, Kuwait University, the National Evangelical Church and the Holy Family Cathedral, as well as important hotels and hunting, sporting and sea clubs.

Binding a little brownstained; lower cover showing some waterstaining. A small spot to the folding plan. In all a very well preserved copy of a near-unobtainable publication.
