New photo of Muhammad Ibn Rashid of Hail, Jabal Shammar

A relatively recent revised edition of Abdallah al-Bassam’s (Lady Anne Blunt’s acquaintance from ‘Unayzah in Qassim) book “Tuhfat al-mushtaq fi akhbar Najd wa al-Hijaz wa al-‘Iraq” (edited by Ibrahim al-Khalidi, pub. Kuwait, 2000) has this photo that claims to represent the Emir of Hail Mohammad Ibn Abdallah Ibn Rashid of Hail (Lady Anne Blunt’s host in Hail in Jabal Shammar). It is the second representation of him I have ever seen, and the first on a horse.

Has anyone seen this photo before? From which book was it picked? or was it unpublished before?

Look at that horse.. shouldn’t we go back to breeding like that?

Claimed to be Mohammad ibn Rashid of Hail
