by Forster, Charles.
Book ID: 11079, 11079
London: Richard Bentley, 1852-4. Three volumes. Volume one is the second edition, others are first editions. Uniformly bound in publ's green cloth, large gilt illustration on each cover, 190+300+354pp, volume one in very good condition with slightly chipped spine, volume two is a fine copy, tight & bright, volume three is internally vg but the joints are fairly chipped, all plates and text in very good to fine condition. Volume one is subtitled: The Voice of Israel From the Rocks of Sinai, or, The Sinaitic Inscriptions Contemporary Records of the Miracles and Wanderings of the Exode. It is illustrated with seven plates, one of which is a sepia-tinted lithograph and the others are folding and extending, and with two additional plates not called for in the binder's instruction one of which is a handsome engraving of a cairn. At the end is a folding colored map (also not called for) of Arabia. Volume two is subtitled: The Monuments of Egypt and Their Vestiges of Patriarchal Traditions, it is illustrated with 15 plates most of which are folding and extending. The third volume is subtitled: The Monuments of Assyria, Babylonia, and Persia with A New Key for the Recovery of the Lost Ten Tribes. Of the 11 plates and engravings here four are colored lithographs. Later there was a chart that was issued, rare now, not present here. The work is elaboratly illustrated. One interesting aspect of Forster's work is that besides his extensive study of hieroglyphics and other ancient glyphs he also paid close attention to the rock art he found during his travels in the Middle East. Some years ago there was an Indian reprint of this work but it was truncated and lacked most of the plates.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
