Item description for Sketches in Egypt by Charles Dana Gibson...
The artist Charles Dana Gibson was the creator of the Gibson girls, America's first national sweethearts. In this book Gibson turns his literary and artistic talents to portraying a visit to Egypt in 1897. Lively and amusing, Gibson's prose is a delight. Equally entertaining are the images which decorate the pages -- droll portraits of dragomans and dervishes, peddlers and donkey boys, bazaar attendants and members of Egyptian high society. Best of all are his deft sketches of Gibson girls abroad, peering into cases in the museum, relaxing on the deck of their Nile steamer, wandering in the ruins, bargaining in the bazaar and even sitting between the paws of a Sphinx. This enjoyable book is a work of art in every sense, a nostalgic masterpiece.
