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. Roberts traveled to Palestine and the Holy Land from Egypt by way of Suez, Sinai (where he visited St. Catherine's monastery), and Petra. In southern Palestine he visited Hebron, Gaza, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethany, Jericho, Bethlehem, and Baalbec

It must have been originally the intention to issue the book under one title as Volume I-VI, but there is no hint of this on the title-page ... ;" see Abbey
