All 247 Lithographs In The First Ever Large-scale Reproduction
David Roberts was the first British painter to make an artistic expedition to Egypt and the Holy Land. The result of his travels was a picturesque vision of the Near East that has been hugely influential ever since. Nearly 200 years later, his work is held in institutions such as the Library of Congress in Washington and London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. This new Folio Society limited edition reproduces all 247 of his lithographs for the first time on this scale. Only 1,000 numbered copies of this edition will be produced for sale.
