This guide describes in great detail a tourist itinerary from Tripoli to the desert city of Gadàmes in southern Libya. It includes fifty-four photographs and many full-page reproductions of watercolors prepared especially for this book. Almost every small village or historical (Roman) landmark is described and illustrated. A large fold-out map in color is appended. Although the guide appeared at the height of Italian involvement in Africa, the text includes little Fascist propaganda.
