Product description

A Visit to Bashan and Argob
Major Algernon Heber-Percy
The Religious Tract Society, London, 1895.
Hardback; 170 x 210 mm; green boards with titles in gold on spine and front cover, and a pictorial in gold on front cover; 175 pages, all edges gilt; illustrated. No dust jacket.
The book is in fair condition. The binding is generally sound though there is cracking along the gutters of the endpapers. Some fading of the covers, particularly the spine, with wear to the spine ends. Some foxing internally. Some pencil annotations on the illustrations, and on the prefatory note. Pencil mark on the front paste-down endpaper with a small bookseller’s label. Name inscribed on the fly title.
Bashan is a term for the northernmost region of the Transjordan. The Hebrew Bible first mentions it in Numbers 21:33, where Og the king of Bashan came out against the Israelites at the time of their entrance into the Promised Land, but was vanquished in battle. Along with half of Gilead it was given to the half-tribe of Manasseh. According to the Torah, the Israelites invaded Bashan and conquered it from the Amorites. Argob is a tract of country on the east of the Jordan, in Bashan.
