The Sons of the Sheik Books

This is The Sons of the Sheik, by E.M. Hull. The book was published in 1925 by the A.L. Burt Company. A few things to note, this is the sequel to The Sheik, could this have started the first movie sequel? I am unaware of any other movie sequel before this time, which is interesting. Furthermore, this book does not picture Valentino on the cover. The book was published in 1925, a year before the movie was released. This is still a sought after items by Valentino collectors.

The UK edition did feature Valentino on the cover. It was published in 1926 by Eveleigh Nash and Grayson. This edition is harder to find than the American version, especially with the dust cover.
