Four camels and their owners relax amidst the ruins of the theatre at Fethiye, Turkey. This plate is from Volume I of Choiseul-Gouffier’s Voyage Pittoresque, a cartographic survey of the Mediterranean and an account of his tour (with the artist, J.B. Hilaire) of Greece, the Greek islands, and the coast of Asia Minor. According to Brunet, it was incontestably the most beautiful production of its kind seen until then. Choiseul-Gouffier’s work offered for the first time, illustrations of remote places that complemented the scrupulously researched narrative.

Copper engraving. Later colour. Fine condition. Size: 34 x 21 cm.
