J. W. McGarvey
Lands of the Bible (1881)



      The electronic edition of J. W. McGarvey's Lands of the Bible: A Geographical and Topographical Description of Palestine, with Letters of Travel in Egypt, Syria, Asia Minor, and Greece has been produced from a copy of the printed text published by J. B. Lippincott & Co. (Philadelphia, 1881).

      In the printed text, footnotes are indicated by printer's devices (asterisks and daggers); in the electronic text, they are treated as sequentially numbered endnotes. Pagination in the electronic version has been represented by placing the page number in brackets following the last complete word on the printed page. Inconsistencies in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and typography have been retained; however, corrections for misspellings and other accidental corruptions have been offered. Emendations are as follows:
