The object of Tristram's expedition was a careful examination of the then-contemporary state of a country frequently referred to in the Old Testament and intimately connected with Jewish history, but which had not been traversed at leisure by any explorer since the fall of the Roman empire. Of the mentions of Moab in the Bible, the majority were in some degree illustrated during Tristram's journey: the prophecies of Isaiah and Jeremiah; the allusions of Amos and Zephaniah; the story of the wars of Sihon, Jephthah, and Joab. These will be read with interest by those who recognize their present-day context. Tristram's Land of Moab contains over 40 illustrations.
