About this Item

Folio. xxviii,127pp. Dark blue mottled oil cloth ledger binding with two metal bolts. Compiled by Arieh Shahar, Uzi Paran, Arieh Bittan, with a preface by Professor R. Bachi, the Government Statistician. Details every administrative area of Israel at the time of its 2nd census after its creation in 1948. "Presents a detailed description of two urban geographical-statistical frameworks: geographical-statistical areas within the boundraies of urban settlements, and conurbations around the large cities." Along with population data, the volume also provides an exhaustive account of public buildings, industrial areas, commercial and business areas, as well as agricultural and special function areas. The census divides Israel into 31 urban settlements, with the total population in these administrative areas numbering at 1,488,622. Of the three major municipalities at the time, Jerusalem (prior to the annexation of East Jerusalem in 1967) numbers at 166,301 residents, Haifa at 182,007, and Tel Aviv at at 386,612. Illustrated with numerous maps, 21 of them on foldout plates (all 1:20,000 scale), denoting administrative sectors, municipal boundaries, paved and unpaved roads, some public buildings, and topographical landmarks. Taken still shortly after the creation of the country, this study does not provide data regarding the "natural geographical regions" of Israel. Overall a fascinating study on the rate of growth and expansion of settlement blocs in Israel, showing the inception of what will eventually be heavily populated cities within the "Green Line." The majority of text and charts are given in English and Hebrew (English introduction on front, Hebrew on back); however many specific details (such as buildings, street names, etc.) are given only in Hebrew. Ex-libris on back board. Corners slightly bumped. Overall in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 22767
