* Attractive copy of this pioneering work, the cornerstone of Egyptology, published in 200 copies by the then newly founded Royal Danish Scientific Society. The Danish naval officer FL Norden (1708-42) traveled on the Nile 1737-38, reaching as far as today's Sudan. He was a skilled draughtsman, and his enormous material was the first documentation of many Egyptian monuments ever, also depicting everyday life in Egypt. ** Danish Book Art 20. One of the 50 most beautiful Danish books ever. Magnificently equipped Danish edition of this magnum opus, which was published in French in 1755. The Danish naval officer reached further down the Nile than any European had accomplished since ancient times and with his precise observations and drawings became the founder of Egyptology.
