Photographs from the 1890s

Earthly Footsteps of the Man of Galilee

This work is an electronic collection of photographs taken in the 1890s by a team of Americans traveling throughout the Middle East. Their material was arranged chronologically according to the events of the NewTestament and published in a book entitled, "Earthly Footsteps of the Man of Galilee." Nearly 400 of their best photographs were published in a large-format book, along with text explaining each picture. This new volume includes the entirety of the book, including all of the photographs in high-resolution jpg format and all of the text explanations.

Uniqueness: There are many old books with photographs of the Holy Land. What makes this work so unique are the size, quality, and quantity of the photographs. Nearly 400 photographs are included, all printed in an 8x10 size. This makes the scan quality much higher than would be possible from smaller prints.

Origin of this Work: The breadth of travels of the authors is even more remarkable. Through the spring and summer of 1894, they traveled throughout the countries now known as Israel, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Greece and Italy. These photographs give a unique perspective on lands that are now significantly changed.

The photographs of this work were taken by Robert E. M. Bain, and the text was written by Rev. James W. Lee. They carried 9 boxes of glass photographic plates, each weighing 70 pounds, throughout their journey from New York and back. More than half of the photographs are from Palestine, and for this leg of the journey they were accompanied by eight men, four horses and five mules. They traveled with letters
from important government officials including the President of the United States. Upon their return, Bain won awards for his photographs from this journey at the National Photographers' Convention.

All images are high-resolution (1600 x 1200 or higher)
jpeg files, ideal for projecting in a classroom, viewing on a monitor or
printing. Also included in each volume are pre-made PowerPoint files for
each region, a viewing program, a screensaver program and an index.

"What a great tour of the mid-east!! This is perfect for illustrating Mark Twain’s Innocents Abroad, or Our Jerusalem by Bertha Spafford Vester, both of which cover dates from the late 1800s. I have to preach next month when the pastor is on vacation, and I’ve got to find a way to use some of these photos!" (Thom Hill)
