After the Flood - by Bill Cooper
Europe traced back to Noah"
Note on Appendices 1, 2 and 3
It would be pointless giving references to the following historical notices that are either obscure or difficult to get hold of (and there are plenty of them.) Therefore I have given sources that are within the easy reach of anyone whose interest in the subject will prompt them to investigate further any or all of the names given here. Four main sources are given, namely:
1. The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible,. Four volumes with Supplementary. Abingdon Press. New York. 1962.
2. The New Bible Dictionary, Intervarsity Press, London. 1972.
3. Josephus, The Antiquities of the Jews, Translated by William Whiston.
4. Poole, Matthew,. Commentary on the Holy Bible, Three vols. (1685). Facsimile published by Banner of Truth Trust. London. 1962.
Reference 1 is abbreviated and followed by volume number and page thus: 1DB 3:247.
Reference 2 is simply abbreviated NBD followed by page number.
Reference 3, due to the many varied editions of Josephus' Antiquities, is abbreviated followed by book number, chapter number and paragraph number thus: JA l.vi.2.
Reference 4 is abbreviated and followed by volume and page number thus: P 1:26.
All, with the exception of Josephus, provide valuable reference material
of their own for their sources. Josephus is valuable because he has preserved
many of the names and spellings by which the names contained in the Table
of Nations were known to the classical world.
