London: Richard Bentley, 1850. First edition. Hardcover. Quarto. XV, [1], 438, XVI, 437, [1]pp. Uncut. Original blind-stamped cloth, with gold lettering on spines. Engraved frontispiece in each volume. Remarkable illustrated account of the author's journey to the Holy Land, with descriptions of ancient and modern Jewish culture in France, Malta, Tunisia, Constantinople, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine; Moses Margoliouth was a learned and respected minister in the Church of England of the nineteenth century. As his name might indicate, he was also of Jewish extraction. Born in Suwalki, Poland in 1818, he arrived in England in 1837 and converted to the Christian faith the following year. This work exemplifies the growing English interest in the biblical land of Israel during the 19th century and growing identification with the Nation of Israel, leading in this case to increased missionary activity, but also to a support of Zionism. Spines and edges age-toned. Tiny closed tears and minor abrasion at head and tail of spines. Small white stain on spine of first volume. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Bindings in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. g. Item #21117
