Edward Lear, Orvieto

Edward Lear (after), A View of the cathedral in Orvieto.
From volume II of The Ecclesiastical Architecture of Italy from the Time of Constantine to the Fifteenth Century. With an Introduction and Text by Henry Gally Knight Esq.r F.R.S F.S.A. “G. Moore Delt.” “Owen Jones. Lithochromotog.” London: Henry Bohn, 1843. No. 26.

This appears to be the only Edward Lear Picture in the book, which I did not know he had collaborated with, at least it is the only one I was able to find.

Orvieto had not changed much since 1633, look at this picture from Joan Blaeu, Theatrum civitatum et admirandorum Italiae, ad aevi veteris &t praesentis temporis faciem expressum a’ Ioanne Blaeu. 1663.
