In 1839 David Roberts, one of the most highly acclaimed landscape artists of the 19th century, undertook an adventurous journey across the Sinai Peninsula to Petra, Jerusalem, and Palestine, along the Lebanese coasts and to the mysterious Baalbec. This oversized volume presents for the first time Roberts' original plates, each paired with a photograph that depicts the same composition and setting nearly 150 years later. More than 500 color illustrations & photos.
