“Worlds in Collision” authors’ passport
1947 British Palestine issued passport to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky.
One of the 20th Centuries controversial authors’ passport has surfaced recently.
Born on May 29th 1895 to a well off Jewish family in what is today Belarus. He is well known for the writing of some of the most controversial books on ancient history. One of his best known best sellers was the 1950 print of “Worlds in Collision“. Though the book is not accepted by the scholarly and academic community, still, it is very popular and well acclaimed for its “original input” or “insight” to the events that took place in ancient antiquity.
British consular passport number 452 was issued at New York on July 16th 1947. His planned trip to the Middle East took place in 1948, arriving into the newly established State of Israel on November of that year, returning back to the US on February 9th 1949.
I have added images of his passport.
