Chromolithograph, verso in pencil No. 14. Image 360 x 270mm (14 x 10½"), mounted on card as issued. Edges of backboard slightly soiled.
A back street of Suez with an Arab astride a donkey, after a watercolour by Eduard Hildebrandt (1819-1869). He travelled in the Americas in the 1840s and through Egypt to the Far East in the 1860s. This is one of a collection of chromolithographs from his watercolours, published as 'die Reise um die Erde'. The chromolithograph is trimmed to the image as normal and mounted on card, in imitation of the presentation of a watercolour.
