A hugely ambitious and comprehensive work, the ten volumes of "Description de L'Egypte" were published following Napoleon Bonaparte's 1798 invasion of Egypt. This book presents 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.
