About this Item

The 3 volumes of "The Holy Land" only, without the 3 volumes of "Egypt & Nubia." Without a doubt the greatest view-book of the Holy Land in the 19th century and a monument in publishing history. See Abbey, TRAVEL #385. Oversize folio (24-1/2" x 18-1/2"). 3 volumes bound in 2 (the lithographic title page for Volume 3, bound at back of Volume 2). Unpaginated letterpress descriptive text. Illustrated with 120 tinted lithographic plates, including the frontispiece portrait of Roberts (60 plates are full- page and 60 are half-page), 3 tinted lithographic title pages, and one engraved map. All text & plates are on heavy stock paper mounted on guards. Bound in 19th century half red pebbled morocco, gilt, over red cloth, spines rubbed. A.e.g. Front hinge of Volume 1 starting to crack, but still quite sound. As with many copies, some of the leaves are lightly sprung. A particularly clean copy, with almost no foxing to the plates.
