Arab Art as Seen Through the Monuments of Cairo: From 7th to the End of the 18th century

Arab art as seen through the monuments of Cairo: From the seventh century to the end of the 18th is an immense, sumptuously produced work that illustrates the richness of Islamic art and architecture as seen in the streets, buildings, monuments, decorative arts, and books and manuscripts of the city of Cairo. It was produced by Achille-Constant-Théodore-Émile Prisse d’Avennes, who is said to have supervised the printing of the work as well as that of his other masterpiece, a luxurious atlas of ancient Egyptian art.
