ABRAHAMS, Israel. Campaigns in Palestine from Alexander the Great : The Schweich Lectures, 1922. [Preface by Stanley Cook]. London: published for the British Academy, but Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1927. Pp. (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]-55,(1), map frontispiece, + 1 plate leaf. 8vo, navy blue cloth with pressed borders to front board, gilt lettering to spine. "That the campaigns in Palestine deserve a much higher position among the decisive battles of the world is a view which is intelligible and excusable, the more so as military events which shaped or reshaped the history of the 'least of all lands' naturally make a special appeal to biblical students. Nor canone deny that the triumph of Judaism through the victories of the Maccabee s was part of the great Oriental reaction against Hellenism, and that it preserved the Old Testament and thus formed the prelude to Christianity." - from the preface. Light smudging to front board, else very good. 25.00
