. i-xlii, 73-552, 1-496. Spine leather torn, cloth of boards peeling, physical condition of interior in general good. This thick book evidently contains parts of two volumes, comprising Introductory Essay, List of Authorities, Gazetteer from page 73 (part of "Arabia") to the end of the alphabet. It appears likely that some pictures and maps are missing from the beginning of Vol 1, which also lacks the first 72 pages of the Gazetteer (Abana to first 17 pages of the 26 page article on Arabia). Vol 2, as well as the 496 pages of the second half of the Gazetteer which are present in this book, should apparently also have some preliminary pictures, and lacks pages 497-614 (Natural History of the OT & NT) and 615-624 (Index to Gazeteer). A third volume also appeared, on Scripture Biography. John Parker Lawson (died 1852) was a Scottish Episcopal clergyman.
