description of egypt

For a long time readers who are interested in Egyptology and Coptology have been waiting for a good online edition of Description of Egypt (Description de l’Egypte). Now, thanks to World Digital Library, a good digital edition has been made available (Description of Egypt has been digitalised before but this one surpasses all, in my opinion)! I simply put up links to the 21 volumes that form part of the Royal Edition that came out between 1821 and 1829. Once you clink on the link, it takes you to an introductory about the volume : to read the volume click on the icon « Open » under the picture on your left hand side. Enjoy !

    Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!

    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I am going to send
    this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a great read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!
