Briefly noted: the season's highlights from scholarly publishers; The Glory of Jerusalem, text by Shlomo S. Gafni, photographs by A. van der Heyden. London: Cambridge University Press. 127 pp. $14.95.

This is a good get-acquainted book for the person about to visit Jerusalem. Different page layout might have improved the visual appeal, but the clear, bright photographs lead the reader on a fine walking tour of the Old City and its environs. The accompanying commentary is easy to grasp yet comprehensive.
