Description

"Jerusalem: The Saga of the Holy City" is for lovers of ancient maps and world history. Jerusalem is among the most ancient of cities, a city of sanctity and refuge that the world's major religions venerate. Jerusalem is the city of faith. In 1954 three eminent Israeli archaeological scholars from the Hebrew University published an encyclopedic compendium of Jerusalem's history and geography, from prehistoric times to 1947. Now, Overlook presents this richly linen bound book with full color illustrations and a slipcase. "Jerusalem: The Saga of the Holy City" chronicles the rich history of this city in concise, straightforward segments. The ten color plates of maps that depict the city through the centuries are extraordinary works of art, dazzling in their detail. Two additional freestanding maps are pocketed in the back. One is a large map of the Old City, the other a map showing the city's principal Jewish, Christian, and Moslem holy places.show more
