Beautifully illustrated handbook on Aramco and Saudi Arabia for Aramco employees.
"The Aramco Handbook was originated to fill the void in comprehensive texts written in English about the Middle East. Employees of the Arabian American Oil Company coming to Saudi Arabia from abroad, principally Americans, needed reliable and fairly detailed knowledge of the kingdom. … In order to describe the Aramco venture in perspective, an unusual range of topics must be covered in the pages of this handbook: the history, culture, geography, geography, religion and economic development of Saudi Arabia; the fundamentals of the oil industry; Aramco's early history and its present operations" (introduction).
A very good copy.
