Petra and the lost kingdom of the Nabataeans by Jane Taylor( Book )

28 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nabataean Arabs, one of the most gifted peoples of the ancient world, are today known only for their hauntingly beautiful rock-carved capital - Petra. Here, in the wild and grand landscapes of southern Jordan, they created some of the most prodigious works of man in the vast monuments which they chiselled there from the russet sandstone mountains. The very scale of their achievement is breathtaking but beyond mere scale is their creative vision, for they transformed the living rock of Petra into an enduring architectural masterpiece." "This illustrated volume recounts the story of a remarkable but lost civilization and the capacity of its people to adapt and diversify their skills as necessity demanded. It tells of their nomadic origins, the development of their multifaceted culture, their relations with their now more famous neighbours and the demise of their kings and kingdom. It looks at their continued, if unrecognized, survival as Christians and farmers under the Byzantine Empire and into the early years of Islam."--BOOK JACKET

Jordan : images from the air by Jane Taylor( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book enables us to share a privileged Olympian perspective of this glorious land. No worm's-eye view can capture the panoramic grandeur that aerial photography can convey -- the contours of the earth, the layout of a whole city with its interesting streets and pre-eminent structures, or the architectural plan of ancient buildings. This book -- the author/photographer's celebration of twenty years of aerial photography of Jordan -- celebrates too the changing colours of the seasons, from the green of spring to the rich browns and ochres of summer, autumn and winter. It is a tribute not only to a land of outstanding beauty and fascinating history, but to the warmth and generosity of the Jordanian people
