Boston Ticknor & Fields 1864 Hardcover Very Good 8vo Illustrated by lithographs 
x, [2], 289 pages; Tight in original cloth binding. Some wear at head & tail of spine, foxxing to plates. Bound in original publisher's deep green cloth with gilt lettering & decorations. Top edges gilt, engraved title, 80+ illustrations in the text, 15 plates (11 of them lithographs, most in color, several tinted). OCLC: 3110981 This excerpt describes the Sphinx: "The Arabs call it aboolhol, "father of terrors." To them its Egyptian feature seem to reflect the smile of the plains at its feet, yet the mild and beautiful expression struggles with a latent power and violence. While it is the comfort of the bereaved, the strong protector of precious treasures, and although as yet it reflects the sadness of departed glory, they think it is only abiding its predestinated time to lay waste the desecrated land, as the fabled Sphinx destroyed the enemies of Thebes. This temple which the sand has buried was the chapel of the necropolis." A wonderfully romantic narrative of travels through Egypt and her archeological monuments. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
