Vol 2 of 3 Volumes. With numerous illustrations. From the first chapter: 'We have, two sources of information regarding the domestic animals used, and the wild animals observed, by the Gezerites: the bones of actual specimens, and small models of animals, when the species of the latter can be identified. Such models were rare in the Prc-Semitic Period, and not very common at the beginning of the Semitic civilization ; but they rapidly increase in frequency, reaching a maximum about the transition from the Third to the Fourth Semitic Period. During the latter they diminish, and in the Hellenistic Period are again uncommon.'
