Malahide past and Present [ Signed Copy ]

By Flanagan, Noel.

Dublin: N. Flanagan, 1984. "600 miles up the river Nile, south of Luxor on board a small Felucca journing on a field expedition to that petrified but ever living world of the Pharoahs, I suggested to Noel Flanagan that the history of Malahide which dates back 9,000 years is just as important in its own context and slot in our national civilisation and culture. Archaeological remains of everyday life articles reflects mans intellectual development, and offer a glimpse of a rich local historical heritage and as Noel has already published a number of feature articles on such interesting themes concerning our district of Malahide I extracted a promise from him to republish them in book form. This is the fascinating result. Alex McAllister"176p : ill, facsims,maps,ports ; 20cm. A very good copy, and Signed by Flanagan. [ Location: BR2 / 1 ].

A test of Time: The Bible: from myth to History { Volume 1 }

By Rohl, David M.

London: Book Club Associates, 1996. It has long been believed that the great historical events described in the Old Testament were mythological; the accepted chronology of the region does not tally with archaeological discoveries. Through a revision of the master chronology of the ancient world, David Rohl attempts to prove that the events of the Bible really did happen as recorded in the Books of Genesis, Exodus, Judges, Samuel, Kings and Chronicles. Many of the conundrums of the past are explained, and legendary figures such as Joseph, Moses, David and Solomon find their true political setting and some of their archaeological remains are discovered. p, iii, 425, Index. A fine, really fresh copy in a like Jacket, and free of any inscriptions. [ Location: BR2 / 1 ]. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
