This is an auction for THE LOST ARK OF THE COVENANT by Tudor Parfitt.

Amazon.com review:

"Professor Tudor Parfitt has made the biggest discovery of the last 3000 years: what became of the Ark of the Covenant, which disappeared from the Temple of Jerusalem centuries ago. The holiest object in the world, the Ark of the Old Testament contains the tablets of law sacred to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Parfitt embarked on an incredible journey to discover where the Ark is hidden,a quest which took him across the Middle East and Africa, following the journey that the guardians of the Ark took centuries ago. But some didn't want the Ark to be found. In the Yemen he narrowly escaped being kidnapped by Islamist fugitives. In Africa he was shot at, ambushed and arrested. Amongst crossing paths with mystics, holy men, charlatans and politicians, he encountered a tribe in the lands of the Limpopo River who claimed that they knew the Ark's final resting place. When Parfitt finally set eyes on the Ark, it wasn't at all where he expected. This is the incredible story of his quest."
