A description of travels throughout Lebanon, written in Hebrew and including a map of the region labeled in Hebrew as well as numerous half-tone illustrations from photographs. Rafael Sverdlov (b. 1885) was a geography teacher at schools in Tel Aviv, and as both resident and teacher had both a personal and professional understanding of the landscapes of the area. The in-text illustrations show Roman-era ruins, rivers, and tree plantations.

A touch of wear, otherwise quite well preserved.
