Summary expansion
Each lithograph was printed in two formats: the "standard" version, pressed onto thick paper, using one tint for the Holy Land prints, and up to three tints in the Egypt & Nubia set; and the "deluxe" edition, in which the lithograph was printed onto thin India paper, cut to size, and mounted on thick card stock. In the present "standard" edition, the prints have the lithographer's title directly below, with the print title and Roberts' signature reproduced in facsimile from the artist's sketches in the lower left or right corner. Accompanying description of each of the full folio prints appears on the facing page; description of the half folio prints starts below each print. After arriving in Alexandria, Egypt in September of 1838, Roberts traveled to Cairo and the pyramids at Giza, and then journeyed down the Nile by boat, visiting Dendera, Luxor, to paint the great temple of Karnak, Valley of the Kings, Thebes, Philae, and Abu Simbel
