Atlas only of a 2 volumes set on the subject of the first scientific study on the history of the Nabateen Arabs, executed by a leading scholar who was specialised in Semitic languages. Kammerer (1875-1946), published several works based on personal observations. He started in 1924 a journey of research to Petra after half a century of its discovery by Burckhardt in 1912. No other scholar have ever discussed or studied in details that dead Arab city before him.
