Comments: Majestic view of the iconic Sphinx in beautiful subtle colors, 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. Small tear to right edge.
