About this Item

Folio. 60, [2]pp (text), 32 leaves (figures), 32pp (plates), 124, [2]pp (text), 38 leaves (figures), 48pp (plates). Original printed wrappers with publisher's logo on front covers. Ramat Rahel is a kibbutz located south of Jerusalem in Israel, as an enclave within Jerusalem's municipal boundaries. It was first settled in the days of the Judaic monarchy during the 8th and 7th centuries BCE. Ramat Rahel was then alternately settled during the Persian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic periods, after which it remained unpopulated for approximately a thousand years. It was resettled in 1930 by Jewish pioneers who planted the groves of shady pine trees that give the modern site its distinctive character. Ramat Rahel was first excavated in 1930-31 by Benjamin Mazar and Moshe Stekelis, under the auspices of the Israel Exploration Society. In 1954, in conjunction with the kibbutz's plans to construct a water tower at the summit of the site, Yohanan Aharoni conducted a salvage excavation sponsored by the Israel Department of Antiquities (later the Israel Antiquities Authority). He unearthed a segment of casemate wall from a palace that dated to the Judean Monarchy period along with a rich collection of stamped jar handles from the Judean Monarchy and the post-exilic Persian periods. Following the salvage excavation, which yielded significant finds, Aharoni returned to the site between 1959 and 1962 for four additional seasons, sponsored by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Institute of Semitic Studies of the University of Rome. His findings were published in both preliminary form and in a two-volume final excavation report. Moderate age-toning along edges of wrappers. First volume's lower front corner bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Upper corner of second volume's last pages slightly damp-stained (not affecting text or plates). Wrappers in overall good, interior in good+ condition. Bookseller Inventory # 35196
