Description: View. Tinted lithograph with hand coloring, mounted on card, as issued. Image measures 13 5/8" x 19 5/8", sheet measures 16.5" x 23.75".

Comments: Stunning view of Gaza, with the Mediterranean in the distance 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 and glue residue along edges. Small chips to right corners, two small tears, image unaffected.

I must confess that one of the best parts of any trip I make to NYC is to visit your bookstore and be received with such kindness. Today I had two big pleasures: Argosy and Renne Flemming's performance... If I have time on this trip I will again pass by your store again, otherwise I will contact you from Brazil. Best regards, - Eduardo
