The Great Pyramid: a Scientific Revelation

by Adam Rutherford

Condition: Good/Poor

London: The Author, 1939. Hardback. Good/Poor. 606 8vo. With many diagrams and a table of Hebrew chronology (which takes up at least half of the book). This is the Great Pyramid section of Rutherford's work "Israel-Britain". Its tenor is summed up by the subtitle of the opening chapter: "The Divine Plan for the British Race". Blue boards, gilt titles to front and spine. Pagination: after half title, title, Preface and plate showing a view of the Great Pyramid, the pages of the main section of the book are numbered 517 to 682, then one page has a sketch of the Great Pyramid, with a quotation from Jeremiah to the verso, then a half title, 'Table of Hebrew Chronology', then title page 'Table of Hebrew Chronology 1454 B.C. T- A.D. 73 Checked by THE UNERRING TEST OF THE Calendar of Sabbatic and Jubilee Cycles', then the chronology itself, with pages numbered 312 to 515. The pagination has been maintained from the earlier work from which this work is taken. Condition notes: Soiling and foxing to external page edges, some foxing internally, but on the whole text pages are clean and bright. Boards a little rubbed and bumped. Remnants of the dust jacket are available, but I can scarcely say that the book is supplied with the dust jacket- merely its sad remains .
