Jerusalem, Palestine and Jordan: Images of the Holy Land
An extraordinary and beautifully presented perspective on the history and society of the Holy Land, as recorded in the writings, paintings, maps, and photography of Western travelers and observers.
This remarkable collection spans the four hundred years of Ottoman rule, but has a heavy focus on nineteenth century watercolors, including works from Edward Lear, Carl Haag, and Carl Werner. Also included are images from illustrated plate books, travel books, maps, surveys, and atlases of the region, as well as original photographs.
This large inspiring volume is a celebration of the Holy Land through the ages.
