Second edition of this narrative of a pilgrimage to the sites of the New Testament, published swiftly after the first edition of 1851. The work's popularity led for a third edition to be published in the same year. Bartlett (1809-1854) was a British artist known for his detailed steel engravings and keen archaeological eye, both of which are well-showcased in this work.
