Detailed Description:   

A history of the Mid-East with maps and diagrams by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley.

Stanley was Dean of Westminster, one of five children of the Right Reverend Edward Stanley, Bishop of Norwich. He was educated at Rugby and Balliol College Oxford. Between 1856 & 1864 he was Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History and Canon of Christ Church, Oxford. In 1864 he became Dean of Westminster, a post which he held until his death in 1881.

In 1852 Stanley travelled to Egypt and Palestine, and produced a best-selling account of his observations, Sinai and Palestine in Connection with Their History, which is still being reprinted.
