Beautifully exotic copperplate engraving, from an era in which everything classical and Egyptian was the rage. This print reveals two sarcaphagus and mummies antinquities, plus the layout of Maastab's tomb from the Valley of the Kings. Note that this print also follows with its description page as a bonus.
This print has slight foxing around the left and bottom edges, due to its age, but this only adds to its mystique and character. Please see photos.
