Abstract

This engraving of Aleppo, a city in Syria, is from Henry Maundrell’s account of his travels undertaken in 1697, when he was chaplain to the Levant Company. Aleppo is a very ancient city, known in antiquity as Khalpe, Khalibon, and Halab. Maundrell (1665-1701) was an excellent recorder of his experiences, and his work is now regarded as a minor travel classic. The engraving shows the Great Mosque of Aleppo, and the imposing Citadel (قلعة حلب‎).
