An account of the late 19th c tour of an English family in the Holy Land with many friendly stories of the local Moslem people they met. The childcare details, the anecdotes about places they stayed, and the stories about the children, Patrick, about 4, and baby Margaret, bring Mrs. Watson's writing to life in what was probably the only work of hers ever published. A young family's peaceful and inspiring tour though a beautiful land, good little travellers! The little picture collages of local scenes and people are captioned with Biblical references and the text contains Mrs. Ward's thoughtful and nonjudgemental connections to the Old and New Testament. Hard to find. Note: This book has been SOLD.

Toploader extra large softcover
CONDITION: Good, no names, spine has been reinforced long ago with linen tape or perhaps published thus; we have left it lifted on the front so that the entire chromolitho shows; the spine of course has lost much of its paper but the sewing (sewn signature) is still holding tight; on the top corner a long narrow strip of coloured card is missing, only backing remains; on the bottom card cover a 3" piece of the shaped edge is missing, top corner and the pages are bent back; other edgewear, and a long crease; aside from the corner bend, the pages are quite clean, with lovely colour.
