Description: View. Tinted lithograph with hand coloring, mounted on card, as issued. Image measures 14" x 20 1/8", sheet measures 17.25" x 24.5".

Comments: Beautifully colored view from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia". Born in Scotland, Roberts (1796-1864) gained renown as a landscape artist from documenting his extensive travels through Spain and the Near and Middle East. His most well known work, "Views in the Holy Land...Egypt and Nubia" illustrates Roberts' trip in 1838-39. The subsequent publication was issued in 41 parts between 1842 and 1849. This magnificent set was a collaborative project between Roberts and the skilled printer Louis Haghe (1806-1885) and is recognized as one of the most important lithographic works of the 19th century. This particular print comes from the deluxe subscribers edition, which was issued without text and the illustrations mounted to evoke the original watercolors of his sketchbook. Minor aging along edges, two small tears to lower left edge, image unaffected.

I'm writing to let you know that the book arrived safely yesterday. I also wanted to thank you for your very professional and awesome packaging job. It's so nice to know that some people do care when packaging vintage and antique books for their customers (I say this because I've had some bad experiences recently with some other book dealers who did a miserable job of packaging a book from 1824). Best, -V.W.
