Book Description Lea and Blanchard, Philadelphia, PA, 1849. Leather-bound. Condition: Very Good Plus. First Edition. Large Octavo, measuring (9" x 6"), Halfbound morocco in brown with gilt chain ornamentation, contrasting (red) gilt-on-spine label. Recently rebacked over original, textured dark-grey "topographic-map-resembling" boards. One of the maps shows 2, approximately two-inch closed tears. Lovely marbled endpapers in brown, blue, red and white. Red, silk marker ribbon, sewn-in. 28 plates. Drawings by Lieutenant Dale and Passed-Midshipman Aulick; wood=engravings by Gilbert and Gihon, and the two fold-out maps by F.D. Stuart ("from copies furnished by Mr. Aulick, from the labours of Mr. Dale and himself"). 508 pp. The expedition, commanded by W.F (William Francis) Lynch, consisted of 14 men, plus one onsite volunteer each at Constantinople and Beirut. According to Blackmer,"Lynch carried out the first successful navigation of the Dead Sea, travelling down the Jordan from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea in 1848. Half the party travelled overland, the other half navigated the river. The boats had to be carried overland by camels from Acre to the Sea of Galilee. Lynch also visited Ephesus, Smyrna and Constantinople. The plates are after drawings by members of the expedition." "Travel was in the U.S. Storeship SUPPLY, which was formerly called the Crusader. November 1, 1847 Lynch received orders to Smyrna. On Nov 26, 1847, Lynch left New York Bay for Smyrna. On April 1, 1848, Lynch's 47th birthday, the expedition disembarked from "De Acre" to the River Jordan, dragging overland three specially made boats, two of which were made of iron and the third made of wood. The boats were part of Lynch's dream to navigate down the Biblically significant Jordan River and into the Dead Sea. His dream reached culmination on April 10th when the three boats, the Fanny Skinner, Fanny Mason, and the Uncle Sam started down the River Jordan. Finally on April 19, 1848, Lynch and his crew arrived at their destination, the Dead Sea, where they spent three weeks sketching, taking specimens, looking for biblical evidence and sounding the Dead Sea." (from Jaxon B. Autry, Lynch's Holy Expedition to the Dead Sea And the Surrounding Area). Seller Inventory # 75397
