Black leather hard covers with gilt crest on the front, gilt titles and decoration on ridged spine. Covers have some edge and surface wear with a number of minor indentations. Marbled page edges all round. School prize plate in Latin on the front pastedown dated 1882. Owner plate opposite dated 1897. Marbled endpapers after which the following couple of pages at both front and back have some foxing particularly near the top edge. The text block appears to be clean and unmarked and the binding is tight. Many woodcut and line-drawn illustrations and plans, several of which are folding, and one map; one of the pull-out plans has been stored badly folded and consequently its top edge is worn and partially stained. "In this volume will be found, besides other papers, an account of Captain Wilson's Survey ..... and of the Excavation in Jerusalem itself by Captain Warren." Part I contains Wilson's and Warren's works, Part II contains Wilson's "Sea of Galilee", "Architectural Remains of Palestine", "The Haurun" by Count de Vogue, Anderson's "Survey of Palestin", Chester's "On the Pottery and Glass found at the Excavation", “Moabite Stone” and Holland's "Sinai". Introduction by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley, Dean of Westminster, edited by Walter Morrison. A very nice copy, first edition 1871. Scarce.
