Found in 21 Collections and/or Records:
157 x 229 mm. A view showing the ruins of Cleopatra's Temple (about five miles south of Thebes) with an Arab sitting on broken rubble in the foreground.
211 x 160 mm. A view showing the standing columns of the Temple at Erment (also spelt Armant) with piles of rubbish and a seated figure in the foreground. In his commentary Frith condemns the contemporary prejudice that anything less than three thousand years old is considered 'degenerate', modern - of no interest.
231 x 161 mm. A view showing the massive stone entrance to the temple with carved hieroglyphics over its face and flanked by two monumental statues of Rameses II buried to the shoulders in the sand and the rubble. Beyond the entrance can be seen the tower of a mosque of more recent date.
228 x 160 mm. A view showing the closely built pillars of the great hall at Karnac (the Hypostele Hall of Sethy I and Rameses II) with piles of debris and stone in the foreground. Frith comments of his photograph: 'I am even ashamed of my view, it is so thoroughly inadequate to the subject.'
232 x 162 mm. A view showing one of the inner temple courtyards with sculptured hieroglyphic inscriptions on the supporting pillars. In the courtyard itself lie fallen columns.
155 x 231 mm. A view showing the obelisk, which is , according to Frith: 'the most beautiful in Egypt', and the broken Lotus Column, which is, again according to Frith: 'an exquisite piece of work', standing among the ruins of Karnac.
238 x 161 mm. A view showing the row of Osiride pillars with the overturned colossal bust of Rameses II lying face down in the sand. In the foreground stands a group of Europeans, one of whom lies on the shoulders of the Colossus. It was from the Memnonium (more properly the Ramesseum) that Belzoni in 1816 took the other colossal statue, the 'young Memnon', now in the British Museum.
221 x 163 mm. A view showing the densely packed columns of the great hall sculptured with hieroglyphics and with an Arab standing in the foreground. Frith comments: 'The effect which the builders appear to have had in view in this remarkable crowding together of enormous columns, is the combined impression of vastness and power - almost of awe - which they produce upon the mind when standing amongst them; and nowhere is this effect attained so perfectly as at Karnac.'
233 x 153 mm. The wrong photograph has been mounted here, this view being a copy of Y30214A/34 and showing the interior courtyard of Medinet Haboo (Habu).
155 x 230 mm. A view showing the massive gateway with sculptured hieroglyphics leading to an inner courtyard at Medinet Haboo, on the western bank of the Nile at Thebes. Frith comments: 'But perhaps nothing will strike the traveller more, as he wanders through these wonderful ruins, than the succession of pylon-gateways, leading from one immense sculptured court to another. The one now represented is, I believe, the third from the entrance.'
231 x 161 mm. A view showing one of the entrance gateways o Karnac at the end of the avenue of recumbent sphinxes, one of which (headless) can be seen in the foreground. The gateway itself is richly sculptured with hieroglyphics. Technically, a fine print, with full detail in the shadows of the gateway.
226 x 160 mm. A view showing a European and two Arabs standing among the ruins of Kamac in front of the fallen obelisk. IN the background stand the Hall of Columns and another obelisk.
159 x 223 mm. A view showing the remains of part of the temple of Amon at Karnac with painted hieroglyphs on the standing walls and fallen pillars and debris littering the foreground.
225 x 160 mm. A view showing the ruins of a gateway at Karnac built from large blocks of granite. Frith compares these ruins to the gateway seen in Y30214A/25: '... the present view represents an older, more massive, but less elegant and less elaborately sculptured, edifice which I have called the Granite Pylon, in consequence of its being, as I believe, the only existing extensive pylon-gateway constructed solely of that material.'
225 x 157 mm. A view showing two of the still standing halls of the Memnonium (more properly the Ramesseum) with an Egyptian and a camel in the foreground.
232 x 155 mm. A view showing the two vast seated statues of Amenophis III which were erected in front of the mortuary temple, now disappeared. In the foreground are two Europeans and an Egyptian. The central figure (leaning on a rifle) is identified in 'Creative Camera' (December 1979) in a similar, though not identical view, as being Frith himself.
150 x 224 mm. A view showing a close up of the statues in a vertical formal. There is an European holding a rifle, and a camel, standing in the foreground.
233 x 156 mm. A view showing the ruins of the Palace of Rameses II at Medinet Haboo with an Arab and his horse standing in the courtyard in the foreground.
227 x 156 mm. A view looking from the granite pylon over the tumbled ruins of Karnac towards two distant obelisks (?obelisks of Thut-mose I and Queen Hat-shepsut).
