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.'

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.
