This is Volume One ONLY of a two volume set. Foot notes, cut-in side notes. Color fold-out map at the rear shows Southern France at the Ascension of Henry the Third, 1574.

BINDING/CONDITION: dark olive cloth with black; owner's name written in (in addition to the Harvey Taylor stamp), otherwise Good condition; no dust jacket. From the author's preface: ''Proceeding on the belief that the Bible is indeed the very Word of God, and that specifically the book of Genesis, which our fathers and we have taken as literal, gives the true account of the beginnings of our world, we shall endeavor in the first section of this book to show that the various facts of nature alleged to prove evolution do not prove it at all. The second section of the book will be devoted to an indictment of evolution before the bar of morals and religion; and on the positive side of the question, to a resume of the evidences for the reliability of the Scriptures, and for their acceptance as the inspired Word of God.'' This bears a stamp ''From the Hollywood office of Harvey Taylor, Authors' Representative, New York - Hollywood; 1751 Nort ... Read more
