Wonderful Italian print displaying two scenes of Egyptian temples from Karnak and Ombos. This shows the two temples before they were fully excavated. Hand colored copperplate etchings.
There are two small tears on the right hand binding side, where this apparently has been pulled from a binding of the print. Small thread markings on right side. Should not present a problem if properly matted for display.
