French early 19th century rare prints of the tomb and mausoleum of Iamblichus (situated in Palmyra in Syria). This pair of rare framed prints, one showing a view of the niche ceiling of the tomb and the other the ground floor ceiling of the mausoleum, are from Palmyra in modern Syria.

The tomb was built in AD 81 and destroyed in 2015. Reconstruction is underway, but the prints show how the interior of the tomb was originally.

If you study the photos, you will see that the tomb print has (on the top left) 1er (premier = first) and Ve (cinquieme = fifth). On the top right of this print is no 116. Photos 2 to 6 are of the niche ceiling (Tombeau) and 7 to 12 are of the mausoleum. The mausoleum print has 1er and Ve top left and no 110 top right. The prints were designed by L.

The mausoleum was engraved (using l'Eau-forte by Reville) by Boutrois and the tomb print was finished by M. This pair of prints could possibly be produced by the same people who did the "Description of Egypt" set of prints in the early 19th century. I cannot, however, be sure of this. The condition of the prints is good.
