Thomas, F. (etcher).
Paris. Imprimerie impériale. 1856- 1863.
THREE INDIVIDUAL PAGES from Expedition Scientifique en Mesopotamie, variously sized etchings on thick wove paper 13 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches. Light general foxing, not very noticeable in image area; light edgewear and toning to edges; one tear (up to 3/4 inches) each to right margins of Une Mosquee a Bassorah and Ruines d'Un Pont Antique, well outside image area; overall good condition. Three sheets from the very scarce publication by Jules Oppert. The images are very finely etched and capture in a haunting way the sense of light of these locations between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in what is today encompassed by the countries of Iraq, Kuwait, Turkey and Syria.
