En 1798, voici 200 ans, Napoléon Bonaparte tentait de conquérir l'Egypte. Cette tentative fut un rêve fou, un fiasco qui allait donner naissance à une nouvelle science l'égyptologie. Les 3000 illustrations rapportées de cette expédition ont été publiées sur l'ordre de l'Empereur. Cette œuvre constitue un témoignage inestimable que nous reproduisons dans son intégralité.

I have a different edition of this book by Franco Serino. It is filled with copies of the original sketches made by Napoleon's savants when his troops went to Egypt in 1798 to conquer the people and the land. Have just looked at the pictures so far, but it is magnificent! My edition was printed by the American University in Cairo Press and carries this US ISBN 978-8880959021.
The best book when you are interested in ancient Egypt. A must have for travellers and historians.
