Description: View. Tinted lithograph. Image including text measures 14.5" x 21 1/8", sheet measures 16.75" x 24 1/8".

Comments: Beautiful view of the pyramids 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. Light scattered foxing, chip to lower left corner, red stain in top margin and a slice at top right edge, image unaffected.

Many thanks for obtaining "Churchill's Generals" - a pristine copy that I did not expect. In recent years Argosy has obtained several books for me that I had been trying to find for quite a while... Many, many thanks! - W. Richards
