The Romance of Antar by Eunice Tietjens


The Romance of Antar by Eunice Tietjens, published in 1929. Illustrated by Samual Glanckoff. The early Arabian “Romance of Antar” is considered on the greatest of the hero stories of the ancient days of Arabia, the days before the coming of Mohammed. The story of Antar is better authenticated than that of the heroes of the “”Iliad”, since the great poet and warrior Antarah ibn Shaddad is a historical figure, and many of his poems have survived. Hardcover with original scarce pictorial jacket with shelfwear to corners and ends of jacket.
