VELIKOVSKY, IMMANUEL - Ramses II and His Time  A Volume in the

Title: Ramses II and His Time A Volume in the "Ages in Chaos" Series
Description: Doubleday & Company Inc., New York NY, 1978. First edition: octavo; hardcover, with gilt spine titles and endpaper maps; 270pp., untrimmed, lower edges speckled red, with 28pp. of monochrome plates. Moderate wear; rolled; spine extremities softened; corners mildly bumped; text block top edge lightly dusted; spotting and mild toning to the other edges. Dustwrapper rubbed and edgeworn with chipping to the spine panel extremities; light insect damage to the lower flap-turn; sine panel sunned; now backed by archival-quality white paper and professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Good to very good. This book settles many problems of historical magnitude. Who were the enigmatic Hittites? Who was Pharaoh Necho, the opponent of Nebuchadnezzar at the battle of Carchemish? Where did the battle of Kadesh take place? When was King Ahiram entombed at Byblos- in the thirteenth century, as many historians claim, or in the seventh century, as others claim? "Ramses II and His Time" is a kind of detective story, in which the personae are real historical figures. Much of what Velikovsky has to say about the ancient history of the Earth is completely worthless, but his rationalisations nevertheless have a hypnotic power which are amusing, despite his conclusions.
