"Less than two months after Prince Albert died, plunging his widow, Victoria, into a half century of mourning, she bade farewell to her eldest son and heir, Edward, as he set off on a four-month tour of the Middle East. Though Edward's adventures are long forgotten, the visit's true lasting legacy is a rare collection of more than 180 pictures, which captured an area rarely previously photographed. . . . The photos are enhanced by diary excerpts of those on the tour, including Edward." -- (07/15/2013) "Francis Bedford followed in the footsteps of a generation of enterprising scenic artists who invested their watercolors with the perspective of romantic sensibility. . . . In a sumptuous new record of his work on the royal journey, the remoteness of Egypt and the once-named Holy Land is evident from the first." -- (07/15/2013)
