Valley of Tempe, Thessaly, Northern Greece.

Tempe. Stackelberg, Otto Magnus von, Baron. Baron de Stackelberg del . Villeneuve Lith. Tempe. "Gonnus dans les défilés de Tempé" Paris J.F. d'Ostervald 1829-1834
Black & white lithograph of the fort of Gonnus above the valley of Tempe from Stackelberg's " La Grèce. Vues Pitttoresques et Topographiques." First and only edition: single page; blank verso.

John Lemprière in his Classical Dictionary gives this description: "Tempe, (plur.) a valley in Thessaly, between mount Olympus at the north, and Ossa at the south, through which the river Peneus flows into the Ægean. The poets have described it as the most delightful spot on the earth, with continual cooling shades, and verdant walks, which the warbling of birds rendered more pleasant and romantic, and which the gods often honored with their presence. Tempe extended about five miles in length but varied in the dimensions of its breadth so as to be in some places scarce one acre and a half wide. All vallies that are pleasant, either for their situation or the mildness of their climate, are called Tempe by the poets."

Printed on india paper, mounted, generally clean; spotting to verso not showing on image; a few spots to lower image.

Meteora is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece, second only to Mount Athos; in the 9th century, an ascetic group of hermit monks moved up to the ancient pinnacles.
The exact date of the establishment of the monasteries is unknown. By the late 11th and early 12th centuries, a rudimentary monastic state had formed called the Skete of Stagoi and was centered around the still-standing church of Theotokos (mother of God).[1] By the end of the 12th century, an ascetic community had flocked to Metéora.
