THRONES AND PALACES
BABYLON AND NINEVAH
FROM SEA TO SEA
A THOUSAND MILES ON HORSEBACK
"Look ye! master treaveller,
unless you note something worth the seeing, and come home wiser than you
went, I would not give a stag's horn for all your travels."

The value of this book is twofold. First of all
some of the pictures are valuable for archaeology in that the artist drew
ancient objects that have since suffered the ravages of another 100+ years.
The second is that he describes the culture that was in possession of these
priceless objects as he saw it. That culture as well has suffered
the ravages of TIME. The text is quaint, but the pictures are priceless.
Chapter 5 seems to have the most value for the Bible/History
