Notes
Content: Printed on verso: "The Colossi of Thebes--Moonrise. Unaffected by changes in men and nations, these colossal guardians of the Upper Nile, of which the exact origin is more or less a matter of conjecture, have stood since time immemorial. Viewed at night by moonrise their weird impressiveness is enhanced and is a sight not easily forgotten."
