Volume 1: The Holy Land
Volume 2: Egypt and Nubia
Volume 3: The Life, Works and Travels of David E. Roberts
David Roberts is considered one of the most expressive painters and historical record keepers of the nineteenth century, and this book collects his portraits of two of the world's most eternally fascinating regions. In 1838, Roberts traveled form his native Scotland to the Holy Land and Egypt, where he created classic paintings of the monument, cities, landscapes, and people. After his return to Scotland, lithographs of these 247 paintings were published in six volumes.
All 247 paintings are available again, with the original text, in a deluxe, oversized, slip-cased edition. Two hardcover volumes, with real cloth cases and ribbon markers feature all of Robert's work, spot varnished for luminosity. A third paperback volume details Robert's life travels. All three are showcased in a full color slip-case, with cloth spine.
