    (1) SIR HANBURY BROWN takes the opportunity of this second edition of his study of the journey of the Israelites from Egypt to deal with some of the criticisms met with by the first edition. The subject is one which has received attention from a number of writers in various aspects, such as the direction of the exact route followed, and the explanation of the various events which preceded and accompanied the journey, and bear on their face in the original narrative an appearance of the supernatural; for some of these natural explanations are afforded, as in the case of the passage over the Red Sea, without imposing any strain upon the received text. The short volume carries the journey as far as Elim, and the discussion is illustrated with two maps, which are noteworthy as indicating the author's view of the further northward extension of the Arabian Gulf at the time of the Exodus.
