COMPLETE SIX VOLUME SET BOUND IN THREE. RARE elaborate and vast series of detailed lithograph prints of Egypt and the Near East by the eminent Scottish painter David Roberts (1796-1864), which he produced from sketches he had made during long tours of the region (1838-1840). These and his large oil paintings of similar subjects made him a prominent Orientalist painter, and he was elected as a Royal Academician in 1841. [ALL VOLUMES]: 300x220mm. Unpaginated. Half-leather gilt Hardcover with gilt ribbed spine. Text block edges gilt. Marbled endpaper. Cover and spine rubbed and slightly scratched. Cover slightly stained. Cover corners bumped and worn. Cover edges slightly bumped. Spine edges and hinges rubbed. Whitepages and few other pages age-stained. Some pages and plates slightly age-stained (otherwise the plates are in very good condition). Pages slightly yellowing. [VOLS.I-II]: Cover corner and spine upper edge peeling. [VOLS.III-IV]: Two bump-marks on spine rear hinge. [VOLS.III-IV & V-VI]: Front cover somewhat lumpy. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare precious set of classic 19th-century Orientalist lithographs by the foremost artist in this genre is good condition.
