b1621. Original Hand Colored Lithograph Abu Simbel
by David Roberts
The Great Temple of Abu Simbel, Nubia, from Egypt and Nubia, Vol.1
20 x 25 inches matted and framed. A good early explorer depiction of the famed ruins.
Roberts went as far south as the temples at Abu Simbel, "those stupendous edifices," and then began to descend the river, retracing his steps and lingering where he had seen the most interesting subjects: Luxor, Karnak, Idfu, Aswan, Philae. A few sample entries in his journal give an idea of the rhythm of his production.
