Description de l'Egypte
The Description de l'Egypte was compiled over 20 years starting from the date of Napoleon's expedition to Egypt in 1798. The book is made up of 20 volumes: 11 plate volumes and 9 text volumes. It documented each and every aspect of the Egyptian history, antiquities, modern state, and geography of that period.
