So Mabel Bent (Mrs J. Theodore Bent) begins her Preface to Southern Arabia, one of the classic travel books written in English about this ever-fascinating region, in which she details the couple's travels over a ten-year period. A testimony to the book's high regard is that, since publication in 1900, it has rarely been out-of-print. Mabel Bent continues in her Preface to inform the reader that her volume is drawn in part from the note-books of her husband, her fellow-traveller, the redoubtable explorer/archaeologist J. Theodore Bent (1852-97), and also "...from the 'Chronicles' that I always wrote during our journeys". After more than a hundred years, and for the first time, these personal Chronicles on 'South Arabia' are published in World Enough, and Time: The Chronicles of Mabel Bent. Vol. III and are of significant interest to Arabists and those enthusiasts who will want to have Mabel's on-the-spot account of their adventures and archaeological and ethnographical discoveries. Also included in this present volume is Mabel Bent's previously unpublished Chronicle of their long journey through Persia, from south to north in 1889.
