F.G. Moon London: F.G. Moon. unbound. very good. Louis Haghe. View. Tinted lithograph. Image including text measures 14.25" x 19 1/8", sheet measures 24 1/8" x 16.5". Exquisite view of the Sphinx during a simoon (or simoom), a severe wind storm, from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia". Born in Scotland, Roberts (1796-1864) gained renown as a landscape artist from documenting his extensive travels through Spain and the Near and Middle East. His most well known work, "Views in the Holy Land...Egypt and Nubia" illustrates Roberts' trip in 1838-39. The subsequent publication was issued in 41 parts between 1842 and 1849. This magnificent set was a collaborative project between Roberts and the skilled printer Louis Haghe (1806-1885) and is recognized as one of the most important lithographic works of the 19th century. Light scattered foxing, chips to lower left edge and right corner, image unaffected.
