Ancient texts up to the coming of Islam are gathered in this volume, translated, many for the first time, from numerous ancient languages, and provided with a full annotation. The first four chapters cover texts of general interest as well as more specific references to geology, hydrography, and industries, while the final chapter is a complete collection of the texts, which describe the original afforestation of Lebanon and its destruction. Unfortunately, no subsequent volumes were published.
