Fr. Vester & Co. The American Colony Stores, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good
This is a fascinating book bound in two pieces of Olive wood with a leather back. The upper 'board' has the Jerusalem Cross carved into it and the lower 'board' has just the word Jerusalem printed across it in black. The interior consists of 15 stiff card leaves separated by tissue guards and with an arrangement of pressed flowers mentioned in the Bible on each one with a relevant Biblical quote as well as the scientific name of the plant. The American Colony was a long-running Christian community in Palestine/Israel only recently demised. No date but probably dates from the 1930s. Size: Small Octavo. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Natural History & Resources.
