Sabaste, Ancient Samaria.
Lithograph [by Louis Haghe]. 502 x 343 mm. Matted.
A view with Arabian horses in the foreground, dated April 17, 1839. Lithographed print after a sketch from British artist David Roberts’s monumental series of views of ancient sites in the Middle East. His work is today regarded as one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph.
