I know these are not Brethren, but it is an interesting series, and I have most of them, so happy to put them up here.

The numbering is a bit confusing.

E.g. my copy of "Egyptian Life and History", is marked Vol 6 at the back has a listing of the published volumes as,

1 - Cleopatra's Needle
2 - Assyrian Life and History
3 - Fresh Light ..
4 - Recent Discoveries ..
5 - Babylonian Life and History
6 - Galilee in the Time of Christ
7 - Egyptian Life and History

Whereas my "Egypt and Syria ..", also marked number 6 on the front, has in the back

1 - Cleopatra's Needle
2 - Fresh Light ..
3 - Recent Discoveries ..
4 - Babylonian Life and History
5 - Galilee in the Time of Christ
6 - Egypt and Syria
.. list goes on til number 18.

My "Recent Discoveries" is marked 3 on front, but the scan I have found and put up is marked 4, so no consistency at all!

The only one I couldn't find a scan of is volume 11, "Animals of the Bible" by H. Chichester Hart. I don't know if the series went beyond number 24.

Interesting that the series includes two books by Sir Wallis Budge who wrote another volume By Nile and Tigris: A Narrative of journeys in Egypt and Mesopotamia... (1920) in which he pays tribute to "the heroic missionary" A.N. Groves ( i.191-92, 210)... Timothy
