Product Description

A circa 1880 copy of the Holy Land, the book documenting the many sketches made by David Roberts on his tour of the Near East (1838-1840).

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter and orientalist, best known for his comprehensive drawings of Egypt, The Holy Land and the Near East. He was made a member of the Royal Academy in 1841.

The book is split into three sections: Division I for ‘Jerusalem and Palestine’; Division II ‘The Jordan and Bethlehem’ and Division III for ‘Idumea and Petra.’ It features 122 tinted lithographs.

The title page carries the following description: “The Holy Land | After Lithographs by Louis Haghe | From the original drawings by David Roberts R.A. | With Historical descriptions by the Rev. George Croly, LL.D.’ It bears publishers details for ‘Cassell, Petter, Galpin & CO: London, Paris & New York.’

The condition of the book is good, though there is some external wear to the canvas binding. Inside, the lithographs are generally very clean, though some have darkened with time and accumulated slight spotting.
