The Author in His Syrian Costume.
The Author in His Syrian Costume. [Richard Robert Madden.]
Drawn by H. Salt. Engraved by J. Clark.
Pub by H. Colburn, London, 1829.
Hand coloured aquatint. Sheet: 130 x 220mm (5 x 8½").
A portrait of doctor and traveller Richard Robert Madden (1798-1806) dressed in Syrian costume, he is shown taking the pulse of an unseen woman perhaps about to be led into the room in which she stands. This portrait is the frontispiece to Madden's first volume of his 'Travels in Turkey, Egypt, Nubia and Palestine in 1824, 1825, 1826, 1827 and 1833' published in 1833. As a physician, Madden was permitted into areas of the cities in which he travelled which were usually out of bounds for a westerner. This was a benefit he seems to have made much use of for he writes 'I have attended for many months past, on the hareems of all classes; and even in the humblest I have found no dearth of either luxury or loveliness...my skill and patience was exercised on all the ladies, though in reality, only one required assistance.'
