Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, xix:1.)--'And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchæus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.' The view we behold was taken at the foot of the Judean hills and furnishes us the opportunity of looking over the whole plain of the Jordan between the mountains of Judea and the mountains of Moab, which we see rising in the distance. At the foot of the mountains in the far distance flows the River Jordan. The little village to the left of the picture is Jericho, and the plain lying before us is perhaps the most historic portion of the world. Over this plain Moses looked from Nebo into the promised land."
