Book Excerpts

With my plinking around on eBay, I've obtained a couple of old books about the Middle East and North Africa. Sometimes they contain interesting descriptions of the dance. So this page quotes some of these interesting descriptions.

Algeria from Within

by R.V.C. Bodley, (c) 1927

The Land of Veiled Men

Shepp's World's Fair Photographed

(In this case, I don't have the whole book, just the photo shown and associated text. This refers to the Chicago 1893 World's Fair.)
