[Middle East with Kuwait] Naylor, Collection of two (2) large boxes with rare an

[Middle East Collection with Kuwait / Iran (Persia) / Yemen / Jordan] Naylor, David (Dave).

Collection of two (2) large boxes with rare and sometimes inscribed, Printed Materials and very rare Geological Surveys with Maps (for example it includes the very rare Geological Survey of Iran) from the private Reference- library of Geologist Prof. David (Dave) Naylor regarding Kuwait, Iraq (near Basrah), Lebanon, Jordan (Halat Ammar and Al Mudawwara), Jordan in general, Arava Valley (Dead Sea). See a full list of the contents below. These materials are all publications, sometimes official government papers or maps or academic publications from fellow geologists as well as for example official publications of talks given for OAPEC. All publications are revolving around the evaluation of Petroleum Deposits, Petroleum Geology and Stratigraphy or Hydrocarbon in the “Near and Middle East” – Maps and Charts and offprints, all of them rare publications and some only reprinted for private circulation. The focus of the publications ranges from very scientific-geological (″The Fauna of some Recent Marine Deposits near Basrah, Iraq”) to actual problems of prospecting (″Some Problems of Petroleum Geology in Kuwait”). These two boxes are only the Middle East Section of the David Naylor Collection (see all the Materials we own from the David Naylor-Reference library on our website). The collection also includes books related to the region (inquire for separate list).

Amman (Jordan) / Kuwait / Mexico / Potsdam, etc., c.1958 – 2011. Quarto. c. 1200 pages plus maps. Hardcover Boxes / Two bespoke made Boxes for the private reference library of Geologist David (Dave) Naylor. Very good condition with only minor signs of wear.

The accompanying Maps of the Geology Report of Iran are showing the historical context of the “Progress in Production of Geological Maps and Reports of Iran by the G.S.I up to the end of 1351 (March 1973) – The diagrams in the Map show in detail all regions mapped from Tabriz to Shiraz, from Mamadan to Mashhad, the area of Kerman and Zahedan etc. etc”.
In comparison:
The Report also includes a very interesting Map showing the “State of Geological Mapping and Publication of Maps and Reports or Iran by Petroleum Companies and other Organisations outside G.S.I. (March 1973)” The Map is giving away in explanatory notes which area or Iran was covered by Italian Geologists, German Geologists, B.P. (British Petroleum) & I.O.O.C.).
The Geological Report also focuses on Non-Metallic Ores as well as on a special section of the Department which devoted istelf to the detection and assessment of radioactive substances, highlighting that several “significant anomalies have been located at several places, and one of them, inm northeastern Iran, is now explored by drilling”. / “Radioactivity was also successfully used as indirect evidence for copper deposits where uranium is associated with the ore”.
The publication lists on a few pages the Bibliographical Data of Geological Survey Maps which deal with Iran.
