This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

A PHOTOGRAPHER'S VISIT TO PETRA.



WITH AN INTRODUCTION, BY THOMAS W. LUDLOW.



OWING to the difficulty of the journey and
the inhospitable and treacherous dispo-
sition of the natives, graphically described by
our Philadelphia Photographer, few Europeans
and Americans have undertaken with success
of late years to visit Petra, the Rock City of
Seir ; hence an air of mystery hangs over the
place and adds not a little to its attraction.*

Petra is identified with the Hebrew Selah.
**arock," t the Amorite, Edomite, and Moab-
ite stronghold ( Judges, i, 36; 2 Kings, xiv, 7 ;
Isaiah, xvi, i). Diodorus Siculus (xix, 94-98)
speaks of the varied fortunes of the two ex-
peditions sent against the place by Antigonos,
whose general, Athenaios, was very roughly
handled by the sturdy Nabathaeans, while his
son, Demetrios Poliorketes, was content later
to lead his army back from their wild country
