Striking copper engraving providing a bird’s eye view of the city and surrounding countryside, which includes a depiction of the pyramids. The foreground is filled with travelers, donkeys, camels and oxen. The view was copied from the Braun and Hogenberg view of 1552.
Fine sharp impression. Small tear in upper right corner caused by hinge tape on verso.
