About this Item

4to. [4],307,304pp. & plates. Blue cloth with gold lettering on spine in original photographic dust jacket. Signed by H. M. Orlinsky on title-page. "On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Abraham Jacob Brawer, and on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Israel Exploration Society, we dedicate this seventeenth volume of the Eretz-Israel series to the memory of this distinguished scholar and teacher, one of the founders of the Society and its first Secretary. Over the years, Brawer lent a special, significant tone to the Society, enhancing the local study of Eretz-Israel, its geography, history and historical geography. The present volume is a tribute to Brawer and his versatility, the thirty-six studies - contributed by his colleagues, students and admirers - well reflecting his broad spectrum of interests. In the Hebrew text, a tribute by B. Mazar and articles by M. Brawer and Y. Karmon illuminate Brawer the man, the geographer and the teacher. These are followed by a selected bibliography of his works." Illustrated with b/w photographic reproductions, drawings and plans. Text in Hebrew and English. Tail of spine slightly bumped. Minor age wear, creasing and scuffing on dj. Tight copy with dust jacket in very good, book in near fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26714
