Richly illustrated report of a state visit by King Saud to the United States in 1957. The remarkable images show the King with President Eisenhower and former president Truman, strolling aboard the S.S. Constitution or visiting UN headquarters in New York, as well as the Islamic Center in Washington, D.C. Further illustrations show Saudi armed forces as well as the Kaaba, while others seek to demonstrate how modern Saudi Arabia is benefitting from American influence and the oil industry.

Central bifolium loosened, otherwise very well preserved.
