Product Overview

During the 19th and early 20th century, the rugged, mountainous land through which the River Jordan flows, was a region of untouched beauty and deeply held tribal traditions. Beyond the River gathers over 200 black-and-white photographs of Transjordan from the collections of the Palestine Exploration Fund in London, taken during the dying days of the Ottoman Empire, through the First World War, and the establishment of the Hashemite Emirate of Jordan in 1921 from which the modern Kingdom evolved.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Beyond the River gathers together over 200 black-and-white photographs and colour paintings of Transjordan from the collections of the Palestine Exploration Fund in London, drawn from the latter days of the Ottoman empire, through to the close of the First World War. Then in 1921 the Hashemite Emirate of Jordan established the state from which the modern Kingdom evolved. These images of the people, monuments and landscape of Transjordan capture the distinctive spirit of the place, and provide imperishable documentation of the region's heritage captured at a crucial period in Levantine history. Most of these pictures are published here for the first time.
