The Society was formed in 1918 by Sir Ronald Storrs, the military governor of Jerusalem and Charles Robert Ashbee who is noted for being the leading designer in the Arts and Crafts Movement. Through forming this society they wished to protect and add to the amenities of Jerusalem and its neighbourhood. This included the preservation of antiquities and the establishment of museums.
In the original cloth portfolio binding. Externally, very smart with just the odd marks to boards. Ribbon ties are in-tact. Pages are loose as issued. Due to paper used, there is the occasional chip to page edges and there is slight age toning to the title leaves and plate edges. Otherwise, each page is clean.
