This one here is a bit harder, It starts out on page three and compared it the several online databases but they only show the scans of the pages and I like to compare cover, spine, etc, and from what I gather there where a lot of his writings translated, Only has Josephus on the cover and top of spine, T. Nelson & Sons on the bottom, really wish my camera was better, on the spine it has, think of four T's put together to form a cross it's bold and has a bold circle, four other different style crosses two on top and two on bottom going in straight line down the spine. The two crosses that are on the spine are those I found on Google images, the picture with two crosses, the one on the right is the the T cross in bold and the single cross picture are the other crosses that are circled. I think I've narrowed the window on the year the writings in the book but not sure, The book starts out on page three, these are the writings in order in the book. The Life Of Flavius Josephus, Antiquities Of The Jews, The Wars Of The Jews, Flavius Josephus Against Apion, An Extract out of Josephus's Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades, then the Appendix-Dissertation 1. The Testimonies Of Josephus Concerning Jesus Christ, John The Baptist, And James The Just, Vindicated. Dissertation 2. Concerning God's Command To Abraham To Offer Up Isaac, For A Sacrifice. Dissertation 3. Tacitus's Accounts Of The Origin Of The Jewish Nation And Of The Particulars Of The Last Jewish War; That The Former Was Probably Written In Opposition To Josephus's Antiquities And That The Latter Was For Certain Almost All Directly Taken From Josephus's History Of The Jewish War. Hope All this helps tried to explain if you need more info I try to answer them as I do not know a whole lot about this book. might have to go to a seminary library to compare the book.

    Flavius Josephus,
    Josephus (37 – c.100 AD/CE),[2] also Yoseph Ben Mattithyahu in Biblical Hebrew (Joseph son of Matthias) and Titus Flavius Josephus[3] was a 1st-century Romano-Jewish historian and hagiographer of priestly and royal ancestry who recorded 1st century Jewish history, such as the First Jewish–Roman War which resulted in the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. He has been credited by many as recording some of the earliest history of Jesus Christ outside of the gospels,[citation needed] this being an item of contention among historians.
    T. Nelson & Sons published 1860.
