Summary "[As First Consul and later charge d'affaires at Djedda, Mr. Van der Meulen decided that the time was ripe for the extending of the activities of the Netherland legation over other sections in the Arabian peninsula and to learn more of the area. In addition to this was the hope of Holland to enter into friendly relations with the Imam of Yemen, and to insure a suitable reception for the representative of Holland in the Hadhramaut. To attain this goal Van der Meulen gained a commission from the Netherlands government. Although this prospective journey was of a political nature, Van der Meulen desired to record accurately his journey and secured the cooperation of a German geographer, H. von Wissmann. The authors acknowledge their volume as a travel book, yet much is to be found concerning the attitudes of the Hadhramis toward strangers, hospitality in the Hadhramaut, flora, fauna, sources of water, crops grown, attitudes of the people toward their own country, descriptions of ruins, conflict within the area, and other data. This information is supplemented by an excellent map of the Hadhramaut, with numerous illustrations and sketches. --Analyst] Field date: 1931, Analyst: Stanley A.
