9781330052723: Letters From Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Peninsula of Sinai (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Letters From Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Peninsula of Sinai

In the work upon the Monuments of Egypt and Ethi Opia, here announced, which will comprise more than 800 folio plates, half of which are already completed, and 240 published, these results will be fully displayed, as far as regards Sculpture, Topography, and Architecture, and they will be considered more accurately in the accompanying text.

Independently, however, of our strictly scientific labours, it appeared right to offer a picture to a larger circle of inte rested readers of the external features of the Expedition, the personal co-operation of the different members belonging to it, the obstacles, or the fortunate circumstances of the journey, the condition of the countries that we traversed, and the influence they exercised on the immediate objects of our undertaking; finally, a series of remarks on the individual sites of the monuments in that most historical of all coun tries, with all the meaning and completeness in which they appear to those travellers who, by their study of that most ancient history, are peculiarly prepared to understand them, but which may also excite an increased sympathy in others who have acknowledged the great importance of this newly established science. If it should directly further a correct criticism of the scientific labours which have resulted from this journey, and which are being gradually published, to consult the circumstances under which the materials were collected, I believe that no further justification is necessary for the publication of the following Letters, however little pretension they may have on the one side to the completeness and the literary charm of a regular account of travels, or, on the other side, to the value of a strictly scientific work.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 620 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.Excerpt from Letters From Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Peninsula of SinaiThe first part of this volume consists of Letters from Egypt, Ethiopia, and the Peninsula of Sinai, published in 1852. In addition to the Map of the Nile, published in the German edition, and the view of Mount Barkal, we have been enabled, through the kindness of Dr. Lepsius, to give a Map of the Peninsula of Sinai, from an unpublished pamphlet, printed at Berlin in 1846 (Reise des Prof. Lepsius von Theben nach der IIalbinsel des Sinai, vom 4 Mrz bis zum 14 April, 1845), which will be found to contribute much to the elucidation of the interesting Letter on Mount Sinai. In the Appendix we have inserted a geological paper, by Mr. Horner, from the Edinburgh Philosophical Journal for July, 1850, in which some doubts are thrown upon the theory of Dr. Lepsius concerning a supposed excavation of the bed of the Nile within the historical period. We have done this at the request of Dr. Lepsius, who is desirous to call more particular attention to the subject. The Letters are succeeded by extracts (chiefly relating to the Hebrew Chronology) from Dr. Lepsiuss larger work (of which only one volume has yet been published), Die Chronologie der gypter, in which he states his conclusions respecting the date of the Exodus. We have also obtained permission from Chevalier Bunsen to add a note (p. 475), pointing out how far he differs from Dr. Lepsius respecting the period when the Israelites entered Egypt.
