'The Spring Voyage' — Fascinating Mitchell
Story of Historic Jerusalem Pilgrimage of 1458

An unusually interesting book
of great historic merit has been
issued by Clarkson N. Potter, Inc.
(23 E. 67th, NY 21), under the
title "The Spring Voyage — The
Jerusalem Pilgrimage in 1458." It
is a most valuable work by Rosa-
mund Jocelyn Mitchell, winner of
the British Archives Society's es-
say prize.
It is not a Jewish book, since
the pilgrimage was by Christians,
in an era when there was a limi-
tation of Jewish influence in the
Holy Land. But the area always
was considered Jewish by Jews
and the Holy places mentioned
remain historically significant for
Jews and all mankind. And from
the viewpoint of history and the
general interest in Palestine, this
narrative, related in a fashion that
describes it without bias and with
a measure of objectivity, must be
viewed as an interesting aspect
of Palestinian history
As indicated in the title, the
pilgrimage was in 1458, and the
48 travelers — their names are
listed as an appendix to the
book — included 29 Englishmen,
1'7 Italians, an Austrian and a
Dutchman.
They sailed from Venice, and
their stop-over places included
Ragusa, now Dubrovnik, Cyprus
and the Island of Rhodes. It was at
Jaffa that the excited group of
pilgrims landed and sighted the
Holy Land, proceeding from there
to Jerusalem.
They went to see the holy
places, traveling on the means of
transportation of that time — on
donkeys. They went to Bethehem,
visited the historic Christian places,
and cleansed themselves in the
Jordan River.
The pilgrims read books deal-
ing with the holy paces, some
began to write diaries, all took
notes and in addition amused
themselves with games on the
galley that took them on a jour-
ney that has become, as a result
of studies like "The Spring Voy-
age," an historic event.
They were motivated by piety
and, of course, an interest in his-
tory and the religious aspects of
a pilgrimage. It was out of the
diaries kept by six of the pilgrims
that Miss Mitchell developed her
theme.
In her important book appear
the Earl of Worcester, John Tipoft,
who steered clear of politics; the
English guide book author William
Wey and others. The diaries pro-
vided valuable data. The threats
from pirates, the danger from
thieves who always molested trav-
elers, the hardships created by
high temperature, the trek to
Mount Sinai, and many other as-
pects that retain a lasting interest
in the Holy Land are described by
the able compiler.
Miss Mitchell describes the
landing. She offers a familiar
description: "Jaffa was a bad
harbor at the best of times,
being very shallow. Since there
was always the danger that the
anchor might drag and the gal-
ley be driven ashore, the cap-
tains were anxious to land their
passengers without delay ... "

were not without their dangers. width, showing the woodcut by
