Many illustrations, from sketches by C. E. Hughes. Orange cloth-covered boards, gilt titles to spine, 192 pages. “I justify this book to myself by saying that it shows what will not be seen again, the Holy Land as it was when the War ended, before progress had laid hands on it. Reading books exultant over the prospect of Gennasereth artificially deepened by many feet and the Dead Sea yielding a hundred tons of nitrates daily, I feel those improvements poor compensation for the loss of the world’s most astounding gulf of fire”. Condition: Wear and fading to boards, with small nick to rear board. Internally clean and bright. Dust darkening to top edges of text block.
