Predominant are views of ancient sites and architecture in Asia Minor (Turkey), Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, and Cyprus. Cassas drew the ancient ruins as well as their imaginary reconstructions. Also present are renderings of elevations and floor plans of temples, tombs, triumphal arches, obelisks, and other structures, along with architectural details such as freezes, cornice, columns, entablatures, and inscriptions. Numerous prints depict landscapes, figures in local costume, and scenes from daily life, including a wedding, a caravan in the desert, and a scene of Ghawazee women in Egypt dancing in the streets
