Bird's-eye view of the Prophet's Mosque

[Illustrated broadsheet - Medina]. Bird's-eye view of the Prophet's Mosque in Medina.

[Weißenburg, Burckardt, c. 1880/88].

Stencil-coloured lithograph. 33.7 x 42.8 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 actual publisher, Camille Burckardt, was head of the Weißenburg company from 1880 until 1888.

Slight crease with minor edge damage; occasional browning. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.
