Thanks Yann for searching out these ebooks and bringing them to our attention. The Tajik book is splendid.
Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.

My bookcases are now way-over their capacity and the time has come where I badly need to make space available. So I  will start with a selection of Brain Mathew books that I will make available without charge apart from my costs for postage and packaging. If anyone is interested please PM me.
