Harper, Henry A.

Book ID: 27145


4to. 128 pp., half-title, 24 photogravure plates on India paper by Cecil V. Shadbolt, tissue guards, contemporary gilt decorated cloth soiled with minor dampness at outer margins, title printed in red and black, soiling near fore-edges, The Religious Tract Society, London, first edition, 1888.


A limited and deluxe edition of 100 copies was printed in the same year. The Committee of the Religious Tract Society resolved to reprint it, and issue it at a price, which brought it within the reach of many to whom otherwise the normal cost of the first edition would have been prohibitive. The aim of the writer was to describe in simple language the chief observations and impressions made on him by the Holy Land. The author travelled alone, painting by day and writing his impressions in the evenings by campfire or lamp. He had been for many years a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Exploration Fund. Views depict Jericho, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Jordan River and other sites.
