In Appreciation of William Facey

In appreciation of William Facey, museum consultant, writer, publisher and authority on the Arabian Peninsula:

As publisher of Arabian Publishing, Ltd, and editor of Bedouin Weaving of Saudi Arabia and Its Neighbours, William Facey was a pleasure to work with. I thank him for his willingness to stand by this book for many years; for his meticulous work in editing it and contributing his ideas to it; for his expertise on the language, culture and history of Saudi Arabia, and for his flexibility in decision-making.

Facey was awarded the Rawabi Holding Award by the Saudi-British Society for making a significant contribution to Saudi-British relations. More information and his speech at:
