CONTENTS AND DESCRIPTION

Henry STEBBING: THE CHRISTIAN IN PALESTINE or SCENES OF SCARED HISTORY, HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE. ILLUSTRATIONS by W. H. BARTLETT.

Published by George Virtue. London. c.1847. Printed by Joseph Rickery of Sherbourn Lane, London.

Vignette Title. 1 Map. 1 Plan. Double page panoramic view of JERUSALEM plus 75 fine steel engraved views.


In the Preface, Stebbing makes it clear that he has researched extensively in order to add historical detail to the fine illustrations provided by Wm. Bartlett. However, he is at pains to point out that where no reliable source of information exists, he has left the engravings to speak for themselves. They cover not only Israel & Palestine, but also Greece and Italy. Christian, Jewish & Arab interests are all covered.
