This link takes you to a photocopy of the translation of his book, which is quite interesting to examine. Right inside the front cover, before the title page and table of contents, is an ancient map dating back to the time of the writing of this book. To read what Benjamin wrote about Tyre, go to pp. 18-19 of this text and look in the side margins for p. 30 and p. 31 (you will have to flip through the pages, as the link just takes you to the book itself).
