Description


These limited edition photographic prints are from the Epigraphic Survey's unique archive of over eight hundred large-format glass plate negatives, which were taken in Egypt between 1880 and 1930, and which provide an extraordinary impression of the land and people of the Nile Valley as they appeared before the onset of the modern era. The prints are of considerable interest as examples of photography produced for early travelers to the Nile Valley, and some bear the signatures of the well-known nineteenth century photographers Zangaki and A. Beato. Production of the series is limited to just 200 copies of each volume. This portfolio volume contains ten prints: Tomb of Ramose; Voiliers arabes dans le Nil, by Zangaki; Egyptian Farmers; Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri; A Lady from the Tomb of Userhat; The Colossi of Amenhotep; Queen Nefertari at Luxor Temple; Temple of Luxor; The Mosque of Abu'l Haggag at Luxor Temple; Two Egyptian Women.
