An exquisite reproduction of an original, circa-1850 printing, the book is a remarkable record of history from Creation to around 100 AD, and the world of the early church. Sequel to the History of the Jews is included – continuing the historical writings to the mid-19th century.
A priest, scholar, and warrior, this Jewish historian was born just a few years after the death of Jesus Christ. Best known for his works The Antiquities of the Jews and The Jewish Wars, Josephus is an oft-cited source for students of biblical chronology and history. This classic translation by William Whiston is a treasure of information and beautifully detailed artwork from the historic Tallis publishing family, best known for their illustrated maps of the world with detailed vignettes. Their work is highly prized and collected, and the caliber of this quality is shown in each of the over 60 full-page steel engravings featuring the work of the most skilled artisans of the time. Each illustration is framed with an ornate and highly detailed border, each unique and a testament to the diligence and quality of craftsmanship that became a signature of the Tallis company.
