Copper etching with decorative bordure by by Swiss artist and publisher Jakob Lorenz Ruedisuehli (1835 - 1918). Basel, 1864. Very Rare!
A very decorative general view of the Holy City. Center point and focus of this engraving is the mosque Qubbat as-sachra, also known as Mosque of Omar. It is one of the main sacred buildings of Islam.
In front of wall there is a wide-spread cemetery almost clear across engraving.
Underneath image and title description of main buildings and archeological sites.
Very light general age toning. With the exception of minor, insignificant creases in margins in very good condition!
