Flowers and Pictures of the Holy Land

A selection of pages from a remarkable book produced sometime in the 1890s, an album of hand-tinted photographs depicting landmark sites in the "Holy Land", opposite to which are mounted arrangements of dried flowers picked from the location shown. The album is bound in boards of olive wood with inlaid border and leather spine. It was produced and sold by the publisher Boulos Meo at his antique shop at the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem.
