Alexander's Gate, Gog and Magog, and the Inclosed Nations
Cambridge, MA, Mediaeval Academy of America, 1932. Hardcover. NEAR FINE. Gilt lettering on spine of dark pine green cloth-covered boards. Acid transfer stains to endpapers , most likely from dustjacket (but no jacket present). 117 pp with bibliography. Clean, bright, tight. The author's earlier introductory paper, Alexander at the Caspia Gates, which is the basis for the present study, considered the legend of Alexander's Gate before it took the form of excluding Gog and Magog and other nations beyond the pale, such as the so-called Lost Tribes of Israel. These topics and the eschatology involved are reserved for this concluding installment of the study. NEAR FINE .
