Ages in Chaos: Volume I From the Exodus to King Akhnaton

£100.00

Product description

First edition 1952, signed by the author at the top of the fly-title page; opposite is an ex-libris plate from a former owner. Black cloth hard covers with blue panels on the front and spine containing gilt titles. Light shelf wear on the boards with a few superficial pale lines on the back. Wear and light bumping at the top and base of the spine. The text block is clean and unmarked and the binding is tight. Maps on the endpapers. Taking for his starting point the simultaneous physical catastrophes described in the book of Exodus and in Egyptian documents, Dr. Velikovsky reconstructs the political and cultural histories of the nations of the ancient world. His reconstruction poses the question - Are six hundred years missing in Israelite history, or have six hundred ghost years crept into Egyptian history? Documents are collated for each generation over twelve hundred years and the intriguing march over centuries presents itself as an exciting hunt after the error which caused the histories of the ancient world to become 'ages in chaos' with happenings that never took place, kings who never reigned, and battles that were never fought.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
