Fortress Of Akaba, Arabia Petreae

31.5 x 24cm (12.3 x 9.5 inches).

This antique lithograph was made in 1879 and is from "The Holy Land" by David Roberts and was printed Cassell and Company in England. The Holy Land is probably the greatest travel work ever produced. In 1838, Roberts traveled through the region, drawing over 200 views of scenery, people and buildings. The first lithographs were published in 1842 in monthly parts by Moon, Boys and Graves, and the final issues appeared in 1849. The Holy Land set, which this print is from, was re-issued in 1879 by Cassell. These attractive lithographs are likely to become more valuable as the subject matter and artist have enduring popularity and sets of prints are scarce.
It was made by lithography on paper which is light, creamy white and is in very good condition. The odd spot of foxing in the white margin of a few of the prints, shown in the above scan if present.
