JERUSALEM - Reports from Jerusalem. London, Palestine Exploration Fund, July, 1891.

8vo. Original illustrated wrappers; pp. 198-224, folding plates and elevations, illustrations in the text, contained in one issue of the fund's Quarterly Statement; very well preserved.
This issue unites several reports on archaeological campaigns in the city and surroundings. One entry gives a good idea of the nature of digging there. 'We are pushing the work hard this week before the harvest sets in; Have to-day 39 men at work, each with two girls to throw away the earth, for now the earth carrying is the great problem. For Ramadan they are working splendidly' (F. J. Bliss on page 209).
