When Napoleon invaded Egypt in 1798 his army was not entirely military. The expedition included a 165 strong Commission of Arts and Science, which was to examine all aspects of Egypt, contemporary and ancient. The results of the findings, observations, collections and artistic impression were published in the "Description de l'Egypte", but this task took many years, employed 400 engravers and up to 2000 others each year. The outcome was described as "without parallel in the annals of historical research." However, the first edition was circulated in only small numbers, particularly in France itself. In 1820 the decision was made to produce a second revised edition, by which time 900 engraved plates had been completed. It is in these that the real fruits of Napoleon's expedition to Egypt are found today. A selection of 174 of these plates appears in "Egypt in 1800" and they cover three aspects of the country; ancient, medieval and modern and modern Egyptians. .A breathtaking publication, with an amazing history of its own. 196 pages including list of plates and concordance, also one map. Cream hard covers with gilt spine titles NF, ditto text block, no inscriptions. Colour art DJ is VG+ with a few chips. A large/heavy book, 1.6kgs unpacked --- would require additional postage for overseas delivery. N° de ref. de la librería 003599
