Prized for their stamina and their acclimation to the harsh conditions of the Arabian deserts, the ancestors of the horses that are now recognized as the Egyptian Arabian purebred horse entered Egypt centuries ago, establishing the valuable bloodlines of the breed there. The breeding programs in Egypt therefore became the root source for the finest Arabian horses, attracting passionate enthusiasts from all corners of the world. Artists, poets, and historians have for centuries been inspired by their great beauty and romantic legacy. Nasr Marei is the third-generation owner of a stud farm in Giza, Egypt. His love for and knowledge of the Egyptian Arabian horse, coupled with his sensitive and striking photography, have inspired this visual tribute. His extraordinary photographs, accompanied by text that traces the history and evolution of the Arabian's journey into Egypt, celebrate the lineage of this living treasure of Egyptian heritage.

Lady Anne Blunt was a woman ahead of her time. After marrying the poet Wilfrid Scawen Blunt in 1869, the pair travelled extensively in the Middle East, developing an especial fondness for the region and its people. In this book, Lisa Lacy explores the life, travels and political ideas of Lady Anne. With a broad knowledge of the Arab world, she challenged prevailing assumptions and, as a result of her aristocratic heritage, exerted strong influence in British political circles. Her extensive journeys in the Mediterranean region, North Africa, Egypt, Arabia, Syria, Iraq and Persia formed the basis of her knowledge about the Middle East. She pursued an intimate knowledge of Bedouin life in Arabia, the town culture of Syria and Mesopotamia and the politics of nationalism in Egypt. Her husband, Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, gained a reputation as an anti-imperialist political activist. Lacy shows that Lady Anne was her husband's partner in marriage, politics and travel and exerted strong influence not only on his ideas, but on the ideas of the British political elite of the era.

The history of Hamdan Stable, once the largest Egyptian Arabian Horse breeding facility in Egypt and home of Hamdan, the treasured stallion whose rescue by the author's grandfather preserved an entire line of important horses. The author recounts his family's ongoing dedication to the Egyptian Arabian Horse. Since the dawn of recorded history, Bedouins, beggars, emperors and kings have coveted the Arabian Horse. The Prophet Mohamed taught that "every man shall love his horse." From the time of Mohamed Ali the Great, through Abbas Pasha and Ali Pasha Cherif, rulers of Egypt collected and cherished their equine treasures. Jealously guarded breeding preserved the purity of the Egyptian horse; today, Straight Egyptian Arabians are known for their exceptional intelligence, beauty and elegance as well as their rarity, as they account for less than four percent of all purebred Arabians in the world. As the old rulers of Egypt died, buyers from around the world took advantage of the opportunity to purchase some of the horses. Some were exported to Europe and America; the others remained in Egypt with wealthy, royal and titled Egyptian families. Realizing the significance of its equine treasures, the Egyptian government in 1908 formed the Royal Agricultural Society (today known as the Egyptian Agricultural Organization), gathering the best descendants of the Abbas Pasha and Ali Pasha Cherif herds in order to preserve their bloodlines for the overall good of the country. Among the kings of Egypt who continued to collect and cherish these horses was King Farouk I. Exercising his divine right as ruler, he claimed the rights to some of the most beautiful horses in the country. Thus did the exceptional stallion Hamdan leave the RAS herd and come to occupy the king's Inshass Stables. Upon Farouk's abdication in 1952, his belongings, including his treasured horses, were dispersed. Ahmed Pasha Hamza, the author's grandfather and Minister of Agriculture as well as Minister of Supply in Farouk's government, acquired Hamdan and made the stallion the foundation of his own stable, Hamdan Stables, which would become the largest breeding operation in Egypt. The story of Hamdan's survival - and that of the stables - through further upheaval in Egypt is offered in this book by Ahmed S. Hamza, a former director of the Egyptian Agricultural Organization and a member of the current generation of caretakers of "Egypt's treasure."
