Omschrijving

Geïllustreerd, Koloniale geschiedenis, Reizen, Topografie - Aantal: 1

I have here a very rare book entitled WINTERS IN ALGERIA by F A Bridgman. No title page and no publication date but other similar copies online suggest 1890. There are 62 b/w full page plates as well as additional in-text illustrations. It covers Algiers, Tlemcen, Biskra, Tolga, and Tunis among others. The book is a showcase of Bridgman's Orientalist paintings.

Bridgman made his first trip to North Africa between 1872 and 1874, dividing his time between Algeria and Egypt. There he executed approximately three hundred sketches, which became the source material for several later oil paintings that attracted immediate attention.

Olive green hardboards with gilt illustration and title panelling to the front board. Black title lettering. Gilt lettering to the spine. Ex-library book with library sticker to both endpapers. 262 pages, 23 x 17 cm.
