[Illustrated broadsheet]. Tewfik Pasha of Egypt.

Weißenburg, Burckardts Nachfolger, [c. 1890].

Head-and-shoulders portrait. Chromolithograph. 60 x 44.6 cm.


Very rare Weißenburg broadsheet showing the portrait of an oriental ruler: the last-but-one Khedive (Viceroy) of Egypt, Tewfik Pasha (ruled 1879-1892). These oriental broadsheets were usually sold with the fictitious imprint of Hassan Auvès in Cairo; this one also states the actual publisher, Camille Burckardt's successors.

Slight horizontal crease; edges somewhat browned. All of these prints are very rare; a different print commanded £21,250 at Sotheby's in 2012.
