From "Iconographic Encyclopeadia of Science, Literature, and ARt", published 1851. G. Heck, artist. Henry Winkles, sculp. Beautiful, classic Egyptian print created during the Egyptian revival during the 1850s. This shows a scene of a magician healing a sick or dead man, while the Pharao watches. This central scene is surrounded by boxes displaying Egyptian hierogphphics.
Some slight foxing on edges, but in overall good condition. There is a page tear at the far left, but this does not affect the print and is usual for such paper prints.
