127576_XHA2_027

This is an original 1849 black and white copper engraving of the harbor of Rhodes in Greece. Shown are ships in the water, surrounded by the tall architecture of the city. We are assuming that the artist for this image is W. H. Bartlett, and the engraver, A. C. Warren.

Period Paper is pleased to present a rare collection of copper-plate engravings depicting the Jewish antiquities and the Jewish War from a translation of Flavius Josephus' genuine works. Josephus (37-100 AD), was a Jewish historian and provided valuable information on the background of early Christianity, and of Judaism in the 1st century. These copper-plate engravings, which accompanied the manuscript, offer remarkable depth and vivid detailing. Please take a closer look at these images, as they are absolutely stunning in their contrast, and would look exceptional framed.
