[Illustrated broadsheet]. Abbas Hilmi II of Egypt.

[Weißenburg, Burckardts Nachfolger, c. 1895].

Head-and-shoulders portrait. Stencil-coloured lithograph. 43 x 34 cm.


One of the very rare Weißenburg illustrated broadsheets showing oriental motifs. These were published under the fictitious address of Hassan Uwais (Auvès) in Cairo. The present leaf shows the last Khedive of Egypt (ruled 1892-1914); thus it must have been published during under Camille Burckardt's successors, who took over the Weißenburg factory in 1889.

Slight tear to right edge; slight creasing. Edges somewhat browned. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.
