Sinai and Palestine, in connection with their history

£30.00

Product description

Red leather covered boards with 5 banded spine with title in gilt on spine and Brighton college impressed in gilt on cover and back.   Gilt edged pages. Some minor bumping and scuffing around the edges of cover but otherwise very good condition for age.  Marble end-papers, with pasted-in Prize bookplate.  Front-piece coloured pullout map of elevations of Egypt, Sinai and Palestine.  Further delightful coloured pullout maps throughout book which is tightly bound and in good condition.

Includes an introduction on Egypt and the relation to Israel, and chapters on: the Peninsula of Sinai; extracts of journals; Palestine; Judæ and Jerusalem; The Heights and Passes of Benjamin; Ephraim; The Maritime Plan; The Jordan and the Dead Sea; Perea and the Trans-Jordanic Tribes; Plain of Esdraelon; Galilee; The Lake of Merom and the Sources of the Jordan; Lebanon-Damascus; The Gospel History and Teaching; The Holy Places; and includes an Appendix on Vocabulary of Hebrew topographical words. Stanley, then Canon of Canterbury, was accompanied by three friends on his travels to Egypt, Arabia and Syria in the winter of 1852 and spring of 1853. His opening Advertisement concedes that much has already been written about the region, but calls his work an attempt "to illustrate the relation in which each stands to the other."
