This is a beautifully presented tour down the Nile, through large, colour reproductions of 124 of David Robert's lithographs, first published in the 1840s. Each lithograph is accompanied by a smaller colour photograph of the site or monument today, revealing how much or, as in some cases, how little Egypt has changed during the last 150 years. Concise discussions summarise Roberts' journey in the 1830s and the recent history of the monuments and are complemented by short extracts from Roberts' journal. The companion Volume, The Holy Land - Yesterday and Today, is also avaliable.
