David Roberts, R.A.

Between 1842 and 1849, on the basis of sketches made on the spot in Egypt and aided by his excellent memory, the Scottish painter David Roberts produced the drawings that Louis Haghe turned into prints that were then published in London.
Ten of RobertsÕs beautiful views of the Nile are reproduced here on high-quality paper suitable for framing. They celebrate scenes of life on and around the Nile and its banks with an accuracy that today would be called photographic. These high-quality collections of prints celebrate the epic grandeur and fine detail of RobertsÕ views, in a format that complements his extraordinary artistic achievements.
