    The value of this book is twofold.  First of all some of the pictures are valuable for archaeology in that the artist drew ancient objects that have since suffered the ravages of another 100+ years.  The second is that he describes the culture that was in possession of these priceless objects as he saw it.  That culture as well has suffered the ravages of TIME.  The text is quaint, but the pictures are priceless.

    Chapter 5 seems to have the most value for the Bible/History professor.
