Among the many splendid works published during the present century, the above has always held a prominent position. It is valued no less for its artistic execution, than for the deep and absorbing interest which attaches in the present day to the subjects which it delineates. To the Oriental traveller it is a valuable reminiscence of the spots that he has visited, and to those who

are strangers to the East, it presents a faithful picture of the

present state of the Bible lands.
