Abstract A book chronicling Latimer's time in the Holy Land; includes words of Abdu'l-Bahá.
Notes Also available as a Microsoft Word document prepared by M. Thomas, which is newer than the HTML version below: latimer_light_world.doc, and a scan of the original [PDF, 33 MB].

Typist notes: I scanned a paper photocopied copy sent from Haifa, formatted the text and quickly read it, added some diacritical marks, added words are in square brackets ( [] ). So-called extra page breaks are to indicate end of original pages so that page numbers are as per original book. Photographs (not good enough quality to scan in) in the original are indicated by reference to them as a separate paragraph in an approximate postion on the page without breaking a paragraph (text flows alongside some of them). [-M.T.]
