1862. Other volumes in this set include ISBN number(s): 0766159809. Volume 1 of 2. Aalar to Cana of Galilee. This work was undertaken with the design of providing the public with a more complete view of the existing state of Biblical literature, both at home and abroad. It was felt that former works of the kind were built too exclusively upon the "old learning" of Calmet and others; and that some recent attempts to give a more modern character to such undertakings had been made entirely from home materials. The work owes its origin to the Editor's conviction of the existence of a great body of untouched materials, which lay invitingly ready for the use of those who might know how to avail themselves of such resources.
