About this work
" … Our illustration represents the Asma Sultana driving from her palace at Eyoub, through the Valley of the Sweet Waters. Crowds of females line one side of the road: and, with the jealous sense of Turkish propriety, the males, separated from them, line the other. A train of arrhubas follow in the rear, with various ladies of the seraglio."--Walsh and Allom, op. cit., p. 83
