"Roberts Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing Haghe s skillful and delicate lithography, and his faithful interpretation of Roberts draughtsmanship and dramatic sense, combine in what are undoubtedly remarkable examples of lithographic works one feels that the colossal subjects and broad vistas were ideally suited to Roberts talent" (Abbey, Travel 341). Penned name in one corner of mount.Slight chipping and soiling to mount; print slightly buckled and with one small spot. Overall, very good condition.
