    London: Day & Son for FG Moon, 1846-49. Tinted lithograph, 48.5 x 32.5 cm, by Louis Haghe after Roberts, creases in lower margin, not affecting image or printed caption, blank verso. From the first edition of ‘Egypt and Nubia’, which in Abbey’s words, together with Roberts’ 'The Holy Land' (1842-45, Abbey 385) forms “one of the most important and elaborate ventures in nineteenth-century publishing, and ... the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph”. A view of the Great Hipostyle Hall, within the Karnak temple complex at Luxor. Abbey, Travel, 272.
