[Illustrated broadsheet - Egypt]. I re dell'Egitto.

Weißenburg, Burckardts Nachfolger, [c. 1895/1900].

Colour lithograph. 57 x 42.5 cm.


Splendid Weißenburg illustrated broadsheet showing the rulers of the dynasty of Muhammad Ali (reigned from 1805 until the deposition of the last Khedive, Abbas Hilmi II, in 1914). As usual, this bears the fictitious publisher's address of Hassan Auvès in Cairo (at left), and also the true imprint of Camille Burckardt's successors, who took over the company in 1889.

Slight repaired tear to left edge; slight browning. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.
