Item description for Beyond the River: Ottoman Transjordan in Original Photographs by Raouf Said Abujaber & Felicity Cobbing...

During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the rugged, mountainous land through which the River Jordan flows was a region of untouched beauty and deeply-held tribal traditions. The people of this biblical country had for centuries preserved a way of life that was soon to crumble in the face of the dramatic and often violent changes that unfolded as the new century wore on. Beyond the River gathers together over 200 black-and-white photographs and color paintings 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. These beautiful images of the people, monuments, and landscapes of Transjordan capture the powerful spirit of the place, and provide an unsurpassed documentation of the region's archaeological heritage and a unique visual record of a crucial moment in Levantine history.
