A hugely ambitious and comprehensive work, the 10 volumes of Description de l’Egypte were published following Napoleon Bonaparte’s 1798 invasion of Egypt. Here you’ll find the best highlights carefully plucked from the original masterwork in which discoveries of ancient Egyptian civilization, such as the Rosetta stone and the Valley of the Kings, were first revealed to the European world.
