Bible Places, or the Topography of the Holy Land by Rev. H.B. Tristram

Today’s free book is a fine example of the genre of Ninetenth Century tours of the Holy Land, almost invariable conducted by Anglican Clergy. I particularly like H.B. Tristram’s illustrations and have used “The Tower of Hippicus” (see p.144) as the logo for this website. This title is in the public domain.
