Philby was the Chief British Representative in Trans-Jordania and converted to Islam after three years, becoming unofficial counsellor of the King, Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud. In 1917 he made the second ever east-west crossing of Arabia and his works give a valuable account of his journeys in hitherto unknown parts of the Arabian Peninsula.
