Church of the Holy Sepulchre Original tomb of Godfrey of Bouillon. Engraved by E. Challis after a drawing by W. H. Bartlett, published in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, about 1850. Steel engraved print.

This is the only 19th century print I have found that does not show the ladder in the right hand window above the entrance door (see The Church and the Ladder: Frozen in Time). However, a close-up of the windows shows a difference in the drawing of the stone building blocks below the two windows. Perhaps the engraver, thinking the ladder gave the drawing a cluttered look, removed it during the engraving process.
