David Roberts' magnificent images of Egypt and the Holy Land rank amongst the finest topographical views of the nineteenth century. Roberts made a two-year journey to the Middle-East commencing in 1838 and, whilst there, executed numerous watercolours from which the finest were selected for the publication. In order to help fund the project, Roberts produced a deluxe subscription edition, from which this lithograph was taken, which is notable for being the only edition to have original hand-colour, which would have been carried out under the direction of the artist.

Hand-coloured lithograph by Louis Hague, on fine paper mounted on card as issued from the subscription edition, good condition with clean, bright colours.
