Sources

What follows is a list, still in process, of the identifiable authors and works
mentioned in the Zucker Holy Land Travel Manuscript.

Because the author of the manuscript draws heavily upon Olfert Dapper’s Asia, oder, Genaue und gründliche Beschreibung des gantzen Syrien und Palestins, oder belobten Landes [...] (Amsterdam, 1681), this list reflects many of Dapper’s sources as well. A bibliography of secondary literature is in preparation.
