Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handsome portfolio contains 10 fine art prints of David Roberts' superb lithographs of ancient Egypt, selected from Egypt: Yesterday and Today (AUC Press, 1996). Between 1842 and 1849, on the basis of sketches made on the spot and aided by his excellent memory, Roberts produced the drawings that Louis Haghe turned into prints published by Francis Graham Moon. These lithographs appeared in the original hand-painted deluxe edition. Published here on high-quality paper and suitable for framing, they reproduce architectural details of the temples and tombs of ancient Egypt with an accuracy that today would be called photographic. This high-quality collection of prints celebrates the epic grandeur and fine detail of Roberts' views, in a format that complements his extraordinary artistic achievements.
