London, T. Nelson, 1864. Hardcover. Small octavo. Pp. viii, 9-288. Tinted lithograph frontispiece. Plus 14 other tinted lithographs on 9 plates, some full-page. Ornamental head- and tail pieces. Hardcover, bound in the original decorated blue pebble-grain cloth, gilt ornament and lettering stamped within triple-rule gilt border, spine illustrated in gilt, all edges gilt, crack to inner hinge, some wear to spine ends, front flyleaf incised. In a very good condition. Nice copy of a charming book with a lovely set of plates. ~ First edition. The chief interest of many of the events recorded in the Bible gathers round its rivers and lakes, and this book attempts to link the explanation of the Scripture with the description of the scenes which are visited. It draws on many sources, namely Robinson's "Researches in Palestine," Lynch's "Narrative of the American Exploring Expedition to the Jordan and the Dead Sea," Stanley's "Sinai and Palestine," and several others. Of particular value are the charming plates, a set of delicate pen-and-ink lithographs known as "Nelson Prints". The image of each plate is first printed from a lithograph stone in a purplish ink. The plate is then coloured in pale blue and fawn from separate relief wood blocks. Not in Tobler, who refers (225) only to Tweedie's earlier work, "Jerusalem and its Environs" (1860). F-5 OUT .
