Synopsis: Palestine and Egypt under the Ottomans is based on a unique collection of art and printed material covering the 400 year period of Ottoman rule in the region. Painters and artists, travelers and archaeologists flocked to the region during the 19th century and produced some of the most interesting records of cities and villages, topography, buildings and customs--much of which has since disappeared or changed beyond recognition. The items featured in this work record this vanished world in fine detail.
About the Author:
