Would someone, please, translate the Title/subject and year/place of publication, etc. As much as you want to offer is appreciated. My First question and I hope I will see how to post Photos, as I proceed. Thanks! Note: I have been in Edit mode awhile and have found the Img box but still do not see how to upload a photo; some sites access My Pictures, not here. I "copied" one and tried to place it here; didn't work either. Help!
[img] hebrew front.jpg[/img]; [img]hebrew flyleaf.jpg[/img]; [img]hebrew title page.jpg[/img]. Still not right! Photos are in My Pictures; not a web site. Must I put them on one in order to take them out, for here? I've only done this type of thing once or twice before and a long time ago. Seems an unnecessary step.
It's not an unnecessary step, unless you like strangers from the Internet to have access into your files.

1. Navagate to "imgur.com." You can type those words in the browser address area each time, or perhaps if you're feeling adventurous, save it as a bookmark/favorite.
2. Click on "Computer" in the "Upload images" section on the page. You might have to look for this, but it's sorta toward the upper right of the page.
3. Navigate to your image on your computer. (Pretend you are going to email it to a friend.)
4. Click "Start Upload".
(Seconds later .... Voila ... your image is now hosted on the Internet!)
5. Copy the link to the image, which is found to the right of the displayed image. (I use the "BBCode" link, and just paste that directly into my A2K post -- it adds the IMG codes so I don't have to. Otherwise you can use the "Direct Link" and add those codes yourself.)
6. Paste the link into your A2K post (using the IMG codes if using the "Direct Link" method, or without using the IMG codes if using the "BBCode" method.)
again ... you have just added a link of your image to your post. Always preview to make sure it worked properly.)
Note: The IMG codes should look something like this, as they surround the link to your image in your post:
facebook is also a good hosting site...
Thanks to jespah/Philbis/Ticomaya; trying it now.

Very, very hard to read but I do know the last word at the bottom is Israel (pronouned Yisro-el).
Here's your book, it's Hebrew indeed:
I uploaded 3 photos in an album; only this one of cover seemed to appear; I re-arranged the photos to make the 2nd one, then the 3rd, become the 1st in the sequence, so each would show but it doesn't seem to have changed anything?
Thanks to Timur! Hope I can get this to happen by Design, in the future, rather than by Guessing several times-ha! Translations anyone?
The last 2 lines
This means from the land of Israel
After that, I have no idea; it's hard without the vowels.
Jespah, thanks for that; what about the Other photos, where the printed script is very clear; any help there? Do you know what the "seal"/monogram on the bottom of the one page might indicate? Possibly that of a previous owner---person or library? Is the Written script also Hebrew? Thanks!
The 'seal' is the star of David and a spear (as you can see). It may or may not mean the tribe of, say, Judah.
The handwriting is definitely Hebrew but it's really rushed. Understand, I can barely read Hebrew - kind of like a kid first learning to read, and it's been over 40 years since I was in Hebrew School.
Thanks for your persistence with my queries; I appreciate the time. Hopefully a Rabbi will "take up" my Cause-ha! This clearly Vintage, Book is full of black and white photos of places and of maps and I think it Could be of Great Historical interest..
I'm not religious or jewish, though it could be said that I read a lot, pro... until it gets to this and that;
but I like books and I am taking that as a beautiful book.
אטלס גיאוגרפי־היסטורי של ארץ־ישראל
Transliteration "Atlas geiografi-histori shel Eretz Yisrael"
Translation: "Geographical-historical atlas of the Land of Israel"
The seal at the bottom of the book:
צבא הגנה לישראל
Transliteration: "Tzva Haganal l'Yisrael"
Meaning: "Israeli Defense Force" (or the IDF)
הוצאת מטכל / קצין חנוך ראשי / ענף השכלה
Transliteration: "Hotza'at Matkal / Katzin Khanokh Roshi / Anaf Haskalah"
Translation: "From the General Staff / Officer Enoch Roshi / Education Division"
Signature (in sloppy Hebrew cursive - harder to decipher)
(On the top)
Transliteration: "l'Yonatan Lipman!"
meaning: to Jonathan Lipman
(Below flourish line)
Meaning: in the Haganah (literally "defense" - the Zionist militant group in the pre-independence Mandate era)
Meaning: August 13, 1960, in Tel Aviv
I can't read the first name, but the last name is "Dekel," which means "palm tree." I assume the commanding officer who gave it to him.
So it's a geographical-historical atlas of Eretz Yisrael.
Some research says it was edited by the late great scholar Dr. Michael Avi-Yonah in 1955.
He has a Wikipedia page if you want to know about him. A very interesting guy
