Edward Hine (1825-1891) believed the the Anglo-Saxon people were literally the true descendants of the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel and that this bestowed great privilege and promise to the English Nation. The Main title (Forty-Seven Identifications, etc.) is only the first part of the book, followed by 4 separate parts, each with its own title page: "Flashes of Light, Being Part 2 of . . ."; "Oxford Wrong in Objecting to the English Being Identical with Israel"; "England's Coming Glories, Being the Fourth Part"; "The Anglo-Saxon Riddle . . . Also, Its Solution."
