The Bardo - 3 Prints Palace of the Bey of Tunis at the Paris Universal Exposition of 1867 Another Fine Quality Print from Martin2001 The object that the Tunisian commissioners seem to have had in view in the construction of this graceful edifice, situated at the right angle of the park, was the truthful representation of the arts, manners, customs, and manufactures of Tunis. The facade was an exact reproduction of the bardo, a summer palace erected near Tunis. The dimensions were, however, much smaller than in the original building, though the exact style of decoration and internal arrangements were preserved. The building was elevated on a platform or basement, which was occupied by the Tunisian cafe, shops, stables, c. The approach was by a grand staircase guarded by six lions in a sitting posture, three on a side. The veranda projects in front of the main building, and is supported by six columns surmounted by cissoid-shaped arches. The center arch is larger and higher than those on the sides. The tympanums of the three arches and the angles of the central arch are ornamented in open work. The architraves are decorated with inscriptions in golden letters on a blue ground. The main entrance to the building at the back of the portico is surmounted by a richly ornamented arch, corresponding to the central arch of the portico. The floor of the portico is surrounded by a richly carved railing. The wall at the back has a base of red marble supporting two large panels of polychromatic faience. The decoration at the upper part consists of open work panels in plaster. On either side of the entrance is a square pavilion surmounted by a dome. The lower stories of these pavilions, which are used in the original building as dens for wild animals, are furnished with large barred windows. This entrance to this palace is very imposing. Ascending the steps between two Tunisian soldiers, who stand here as sentinels, you enter a fine wide hall, on the left of which is the guardhouse, which contains a small armory, while adjoining is the chamber of Sidi Mustapha Khazmadar, who filled the office of prime minister during three successive reigns. This room opens into that of the Bey, thus affording the minister continual access. The chamber of the Bey is styled beit-el-bacha, and is lighted by peculiar windows called moucharabi, a sort of grating, by which light is admitted through a trellis work of plaster. These openings afford a full view of all that passes outside, but do not allow those outside to see what is within.

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
