by CAIRO - ARCHITECTURE) Protain (del). Moisy (sculpt)

Condition: See description


Paris.: Panckouke.. No date. Ca. 1820.. Copper plate engraving (uncolored), image approximately 23 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches on sheet 28 x 21 1/4 inches. Very good condition: tissue guard attached at left edge, a few faint foxed spots to upper left and lower right margin. Publisher's blindstamp at top right. Plate 36 from Volume I of the 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 of this work 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. Shown are details from the Mosque of Sultan Hassan. .
