1842-45 This is without exception one of the most sumptuous works ever executed in any country, but its high price has hitherto kept it out of the hands of all but the wealthy. It is of equal interest to the Amateur, the Architect, the Sculptor and the Decorator, for nothing can exceed the number, pariety, and beauty, of the Ornaments and Details. It is accompanied by a complete Translation, by Pasqual de Gayangos, of the Arabic Inscriptions, and an historical notice of the Kings of Granada from the Conquest of that City by the Arabs to the Expulsion of the Moors.

“ The Alhambra still exists-one of the most recent of European ruins. It is the most perfect in repair and the richest in design, and is still one of the most wonderful productions of Eastern splendour.”
