About this title

Synopsis:

ABOUT THIS BOOK -- In 1839, Scottish Painter David Roberts embarked on an extensive tour of Egypt, Nubia, the Sinai, the Holy Land, Jordan and Lebanon. Two years of on-the-spot sketches and water colours were reworked and released as enormously popular lithographs, even favoured by Roberts' most important subscriber, Queen Victoria. Roberts' work speaks to those who are interested in Orientalist painting, to those who wonder what these historic sites looked like before industrialization and tourism, or simply to those who love the Holy Land and Egypt. ABOUT THIS EDITON -- White Star's 3 volume, slipcased set is visually impressive and editorially superb. About 600 pages consisting largely of full page (or larger) colour illustrations. The original Croly historical descriptions are used to great advantage here. One volume is The Holy Land, one volume is Egypt and Nubia, and a third small volume is about Roberts' life and work. BOOK DETAILS -- cloth over boards, sewn bindings; color insets in gold rules on each cover; illustrated cloth-bound slipcase. About 14 pounds.
