Frenzel, F. A. Joseph wird verkauft.

Berlin, A. Sacco, ca 1860.

Toned lithograph. 375:540 mm.


From a series of illustrations depicting the Old Testament story of Joseph within oriental scenery of bedouins, palms, and camels. Joseph (Yusuf) is regarded by Muslims as a prophet (Qur'an, suras vi, 84; xl, 34), and a whole chapter Yusuf (sura xii) is devoted to him, the only instance in the Qur'an in which an entire chapter is devoted to a complete story of a prophet.

A few edge flaws, some repaired, with some browning and staining.
