Description of Egypt

by Gilles Neret, France
 

Napoleon's attempt to conquer Egypt in 1798 was a mad dream, a fiasco, but it gave rise to a new science: Egyptology. The 3000 illustrations brought back from the expedition were published by order of the Emperor. They constitute invaluable testimony and we have reproduced them in full.
