Title in English: Description of Travels in the Lands of Palestine to Jerusalem and other Holy Places.
Description of Travels in the Lands of Palestine, Jerusalem and other Holy Places is a Lithuanian translation of the book about a pilgrimage, Wspomnienia z pielgrzymki do Ziemi Świętej, written by the priest Feliks Gondek (1821–1892). It was translated from Polish by publisher and distributor of banned Lithuanian press Juozas Antanavičius (~1831 – ~1898). In 1880, he financed the publishing of a contrafaction edition of the book. Contrafactions became popular in the years of the Lithuanian Press Ban (1864–1904). Contrafactions are works that deliberately indicate a false date or place of publication, and sometimes author as well. Approval of the government, censors or the Church were also falsified or copied from previous editions. The book was published in E. Miugė’s printing house that operated in 1844–1899 (?) in Ragainė.
