Book Description:

Vivant Denon (1747-1825), a dilettante and diplomat under the Ancien Régime, survived the Revolution and accompanied Napoleon's army to Egypt. The publication in 1802 of this lively, illustrated three-volume account (translated a year later) is regarded as the chief stimulus for the so-called 'Egyptian Revival' style of architecture and interior design.
