About this Item

Quarto. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over photo-illustrated paper covered boards. Ribbon marker. Written by an Iranian Jew, this monumental volume tells the story of ancient Israel from the beginnings* to the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz Israel (to be known as the State of Israel), on May 14, 1948. This book is profusely illustrated throughout with numerous color and b/w photographic reproductions and includes several maps. Minor shelf wear. Text in Persian. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in overall very good condition. * The history of the early Jews, and their neighbors, is mainly that of the Fertile Crescent and east coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It begins among those people who occupied the area lying between the Nile, Tigris and the Euphrates rivers. Surrounded by ancient seats of culture in Egypt and Babylonia, by the deserts of Arabia, and by the highlands of Asia Minor, the land of Canaan (roughly corresponding to modern Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Jordan and Lebanon) was a meeting place of civilizations. The land was traversed by old-established trade routes and possessed important harbors on the Gulf of Aqaba and on the Mediterranean coast, the latter exposing it to the influence of other cultures of the Fertile Crescent. According to the Jewish sacred writings, which became the Hebrew Bible, Jews are descended from the ancient people of Israel who settled in the land of Canaan between the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Ancient Hebrew writings describe the "Children of Israel" as descendants of common ancestors, including Abraham, his son Isaac, and Isaac's son Jacob. Religious literature suggests that the nomadic travels of the Hebrews centered around Hebron in the first centuries of the second millennium BCE, apparently leading to the establishment of the Cave of the Patriarchs as their burial site in Hebron. The Children of Israel consisted of twelve tribes, each descended from one of Jacob's twelve sons, Reuven, Shimon, Levi, Yehuda, Yissachar, Zevulun, Dan, Gad, Naftali, Asher, Yosef, and Benyamin.
