Condition: See description


Paris.: Panckouke.. No date. Ca. 1820.. Copper plate engraving (uncolored), plate area approximately 22 1/2 x 16 inches on sheet size 28 x 21 1/2 inches. Publisher's blindstamp at top right. Tissue guard attached at left edge, dampstain to lower left corner (outside plate area), light foxing to outer margins. Shows two half page views of woodworkers: carpenters, sawyers and joiners. Plate XIX from Vol. II of the Etat Moderne (Modern State) section of the monumental publication "Description de L'Egypte," which documented the research of the "savants" who accompanied Napoleon Bonaparte's ambitious expedition to Egypt (1798-1801). The full title, translated into English reads "Description of Egypt, or the collection of observations and research made in Egypt during the Expedition of the French Army" hinting at the varied purposes of this foray into the Middle East. The European demand for information about Egypt and its glorious monuments led to the publication of two editions of the work, with engravings pulled from the same printing plates; this is from the second edition, uncolored as issued. .
