By Reverend D.A. Randall. Published in 1868 by John E. Potter & Co., Philadelphia. Illustrated with Maps, Diagrams and Numerous Illustrations. 714 pages. Condition: GOOD ANTIQUE CONDITION. Exterior as shown in photo with some rubbing at edges and corners. Firm binding. Text is clean and complete, with some foxing. No torn, loose or missing pages. Description: THE HANDWRITING OF GOD, a richly detailed and beautifully illustrated history and travel narrative of Egypt, Sinai and the Holy Land, was originally published in two volumes. In this 1868 edition, both volumes are consolidated in a single book. The first volume covers the author’s visit to Egypt and the Sinai region. It features very detailed descriptions of Egyptians of that period, their mode of living, style of dress, etc., as well as other sights in and around Cairo, the Nile, and nearby Petra and other places. The Reverend also ventures out of Egypt into the desert to see for himself some of the sites associated with Exodus and other books of the Bible – for example, the “Smitten Stone” said to have been struck by Moses himself, another local stone formation reputedly used by Aaron as a mold for the casting of the Golden Calf, and even the infamous Pillar of Salt, into which Lot’s wife was transformed when she looked back at the destruction of Sodom. He furnishes very detailed descriptions of these and other sites associated with Scriptural history. Part Two (or Volume Two) follows the author as he explores the Holy City of Jerusalem and the numerous sites associated with both the Old and New Testaments, especially the scenes associated with Christ’s Passion and Resurrection: The Garden of Gethsemane, Cavalry, The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, etc. He also visits some of the most sacred sites of the Old Testament revered for centuries by Jews. At the time he visited, Jews endured an uneasy coexistence with Moslems in Jerusalem; these tensions sometimes made his investigations more difficult. This large, thick work (714 pages) features a number of interesting full-page engravings. You can see some of these historic images for yourself further down this page, along with my own personally-prepared summary of the book’s contents. I hope you’ll take a moment to have a look.
