Dedicated and inscribed by the author to the title page.
J R Macduff was a Scottish divine and prolific author, and this is his study of the Mount (of) Olivet, or The Mount of Olives on the east side of Jerusalem, the scene of Christ's Ascension, and Gethsemane. The frontispiece shows Mount of Olives as it was in Christ's time.
A reading copy only. Although a scarce title, and rare to find signed, this copy has been heavily read. The green cloth is rather rubbed and bumped. A previous owner has annotated several of the pages with underlining and marginal notes, and some of the pages have staining (possibly offsetting). The inner binding is pulled in places but the book remains in readable condition.
