[Illustrated broadsheet - Mecca]. The draperies at the "Makam Ibrahim" (Abraham's Station) in Mecca.

[Weißenburg, Burckardt, c. 1880/88].

Colour lithograph. 43 x 33.3 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, minor edge damage and browning. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.

Des Mondes de Papier p. 66, no. 2.
