Norman Kotker relates both the physical and spiritual history of Jerusalem, from 2900 B.C. to the present day. The record of Jerusalem’s long, violent life involves Egyptians, Jews, Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims, Crusaders, Turks, and British, in battle, destruction, and rebuilding over the centuries. The temples and palaces are described in “The Earthly Jerusalem”, the customs and trade of the inhabitants; but Mr. Kotker’s special achievement is to keep clear and meaningful the religious significance of the city which has made Jerusalem, as Pope Urban said, “the center of the earth”. CONDITION: VERY GOOD. Seemingly unread hardcover w/dustjacket. Charles Scribner's Sons (1969) 307 pages. I would guess based on appearances someone flipped through the book once or twice looking at the pictures, then put it away never to take it down and actually "read" the book...however the dustjacket is only "fair". Inside the book is perfect EXCEPT for the fact that the original owner wrote their name, in ink, neatly, at the upper right corner of the first page of the book (the front "end paper"). Otherwise the pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound; evidencing little or no reading wear. From the outside however the dustjacket does evidence fairly heavy edge wear to the spine head and heel, including a small 1/4" * 1/2" chip, one each both to the spine head and heel. The dustjacket is otherwise fairly presentable, it is just the spine head and heel which evidence abrasion/rubbing, with a few minute (1/8") closed (neatly mended) closed edge tears to the top edge of the back side of the dustjacket, and minute chipping to the upper open corner of both the back and front side of the dustjacket. Beneath the dustjacket the full cloth covers evidence only mild edge and corner shelfwear. Given the fact that the original owner wrote their name on the front end paper, and the dustjacket evidences moderate shelfwear, the book clearly lacks the "sex appeal" of a "shelf trophy". However the book is unread, perhaps lightly flipped through, but inside without blemish or obvious reading wear. If you're looking for a clean, unread or nearly unread copy of this fairly scarce title, this copy merits consideration. Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship. No disappointments, no excuses. PROMPT SHIPPING! HEAVILY PADDED, DAMAGE-FREE PACKAGING! #336c. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR JACKET DESCRIPTION(S) AND FOR PAGES OF PICTURES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Norman Kotker is the author of four novels: “Billy in Love” (1996), “Learning About God” (1988), “Miss Rhode Island” (1978), and “Herzl the King” (1972). He is also the author of numerous histories, among them, “New England Past” (1980), “Massachusetts: A Pictorial History” (1976), and of course “The Earthly Jerusalem” (1969). From 1960 to 1969 he was editor of Horizon Books for the American Heritage Publishing Company. PROFESSIONAL REVIEW: REVIEW: “The Earthly Jerusalem” is a historical study of Jerusalem, sacred city of Jews, Christians and Muslims, from 2900 B.C. to the mid-20th century. Relates the physical and spiritual history of the city, and is a graceful, wryly intelligent account of Jerusalem from earliest to modern times. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: The story of Jerusalem from 2900 B. C. to the present day. This book conveys the full story and meaning of Jerusalem, foremost among the sacred cities, where Christians, Jews and Muslims still struggle to establish their version of heaven on earth. “The Earthly Jerusalem” is written with full command of its complex subject and with a keen sense of the revealing detail. It is a superb history. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
