Out of stock
In 1828 a Franco-Tuscan alliance headed an international scientific expedition to Egypt and Nubia to record its ancient monuments. This large-format book includes an introduction to the expedition led by Jean-François Champollion and Ippolito Rosellini, although the largest part of the book comprises many of Rosellini's illustrations arranged thematically into historic, civil and religious monuments. The many colour drawings and some black and white sketches include depictions of the battles and victims of Ramesses II, the Battle of Kadesh, bird hunts, the heads of foreigners, exotic animals, fishing, farming and carpentry scenes, and much more besides.
