This vintage hardcover book is titled Home Of The Bible by Marion Harland. The book describes itself as "a woman's vision of the Master's land - an account of the sacred places, battle scenes, historical events, tragedies and romances, marvelous legend, customs and characters, hopes and promises of the race of Israel". The book has been "copiously illustrated with engravings from photographic views taken in Palestine, to which has been added the thrilling story of Armenia, the Christian people of Ancient Eden and their cruel persecutions by the Moslems" by G H Sandison "from facts furnished by missionaries who have traveled and lived among these primitive people and are familiar with their customs, the quiet heroism of their dispositions, and the purity and firmness of their religious principles".
The 7" x 9" book has 446 pages & an 1896 copyright by Historical Publishing Company in Philadelphia. The cover shows wear/damage, mainly along the spine. The pages remain undamaged. Nice addition to a resource library on the Holy Land.
