        Louisiana Purchase

      , November 5, 1803. November 5, 1803. Newspaper: A rare front page printing of the Louisiana Purchase Treaty in the Providence Phoenix, Saturday, November 5,1803 (William W. Dunham) Vol. II - No. 78, 4 pages, 11.5" x 18". Usual folds, toning and minor marginal wear. Titled "Louisiana Treaty", this unusual front page printing of the treaty celebrates the news of its ratification in the Senate on October 20, 1803 by a vote of 24 to 7: "We congratulate our fellow-citizens on the prompt approbation given by the Senate to this important Act. The treaty, as advised to be ratified by the Senate, and which we have no doubt will in a short time receive the final ratification of the President of the United States." The full printing of the treaty, unusually placed on the front page that was normally reserved for advertisements, was printed only two months before the final transfer of sovereignty over the vast new territory. Signed in Print "BARBE MARBOIS. ROB. R. LIVINGSTON, JAS. MONROE --" The Treaty together with two accompanying conventions consume three columns on page one together with two more on page two. The balance of page two covers happenings in the House of Representatives from October 18 - 22. On the latter day, "The President communicated by Message to the House, the ratified Louisiana Treaty. it was referred to a committee of the whole House. Mr. Randolph offered a resolution making provision for carrying the treaty into effect." The same day, "the committee to whom were transferred two resolutions proposing amendments to the constitution of the United States relative to the election of the President and Vice President, have according to order, had the same under consideration, and beg leave to submit the following report…" offering the text of what became the Twelfth Amendment.

Ballester', 'F[ernando]. Selma' y 'J[uan]. Moreno [Tejada]'.- // Encuadernación muy fatigada en plena piel. Primeras y últimas hojas afectadas de moho antiguo (eliminado) con márgenes frágiles.

Sin embargo, la impresión de las láminas se demoró y los tres tomos de texto que se habían impreso se guardaron en su espera. Finalmente, como pasaba demasiado tiempo, se pusieron en circulación en 1792, acompañados de un tomo titulado Láminas pertenecientes al articulo XII de minas, y a los seis articulos de la segunda parte del Tratado de Artilleria que se enseña en el Real Colegio Militar de Segovia, que había impreso la viuda de Ibarra en Madrid, que reunía 21 láminas. Morla pretendía así darse tiempo para terminar de revisar el resto de las láminas, preparar algunas tablas y revisar el texto de la obra para modificarlo con avances procedentes de la química y de sus recientes viajes por Europa. Entrado ya el siglo XIX Morla se dio cuenta de que no podía asumir preparar esa segunda ediciónni de escribir la explicación de las láminas, que ya estaban grabadas. De se modo, en 1803 se publicó, por fin, casi veinte años después de impresa la obra, once más tarde de que se difundiera el texto, el tomo de láminas que ofrecemos. En él, tenían que haberse incluido 131 láminas, pero, como se señala en el índice impreso que las precede, 12 de ellas, referidas a carruajes, utensilios y montajes que habían quedado en desuso, ni se grabaron ni se incluyeron nunca en la obra. En 1816, fallecido Morla, volvió a imprimirse, de nuevo en Segovia, el tratado de artillería, sin el tomo de láminas y acompañado de un denominado volumen V, de explicaciones de las láminas, que había dejado escritas Francisco de Dátoli antes de la guerra y se ignora quién completo(2).- // (1) Sobre Morla, puede verse María Dolores Herrero Fernández-Quesada: Ciencia y milicia en el siglo XVIII.

        Portrait of Joseph Ritson.

      - London: H. Humphrey, 22 March 1803. Etching, engraving and aquatint on thin grey surfaced or prepared paper, platemark 272 x 207 mm, sheet size 306 x 221 mm, tipped to white backing sheet and mounted. An extraordinary satirical portrait of the eccentric author and vegetarian Joseph Ritson. He stands at his desk writing in a large book headed "Common Place". His finger and toe nails are talons; he dips his pen into an ink-stand inscribed "Gall", and has written "Moses an Imposter the prophets old Cloaths Men of Judaea Warburton a fool Dr Percy a Liar Warton an infamous Liar a pipeer better than a parson". From hispocket projects a pamphlet "The Atheist's pocket Companion". He stands on a slab of damaged papers headed "Dr Percy's Antient Balla[ds]"; in front of him is large open book with a portrait of Thomas Warton stabbed through with a knife and fork. The room is filled with large folio volumes and vegetable products, with a cow munching at a basket of leaves beside a paper "Bill of Fare / Nettle Soup / Sour Crout / Horse Beans / Onions Leeks"; an emaciated and chained cat crouches on the top shelf besidea book "Abstinence from animal food a moral duty"; and a frog squats on the desk. Below the image are Latin, Greek and English quotes."Ritson the antiquary (1752 - 23 September 1803) was sinking from morose or savage eccentricity to insanity. Since reading Mandeville's Fables of the Bees in 1772 he had lived on milk and vegetable. The scene must represent his chambers in Gray's Inn where (Sept. 1803) he burnt many manuscripts. He disregarded the decencies of literary controversy, and attacked (1782) Warton's History of English Poetry. His ownSelect Collection of English Songs (1783) was marred by attacks on the Reliques of Percy whom he again assailed in 1792. In 1793 he adopted the French republican calendar and declared himself an atheist. Sayers's figure was copied for the only [other] two portraits of Ritson, three-quarter length and half length" - M. Dorothy George, Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum.

        Female Biography; or, Memoirs of Illustrious and Celebrated Women, of All Ages and Countries

      London: Richard Phillips, 1803. First edition of this important work of feminist historiography by English radical Mary Hays. Active in the Jacobin circles of William Godwin and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Hays was particularly influenced by Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), which inspired Hays to leave home and live independently, supporting herself through her writing as Wollstonecraft did. In Female Biography, an ambitious popular history covering thousands of years, Hays encourages women readers to reflect on their current disenfranchised status: "My pen has been taken up in the cause, and for the benefit, of my own sex." She pays particular attention to the lives of women rulers (Cleopatra, Boadicea, Elizabeth I, Christina of Sweden, Catherine the Great), and artists (Sappho, Artemisia Gentileschi, Madame de la Fayette, Anne Bradstreet, Aphra Behn), pointedly including rebellious women alongside the more traditionally virtuous. In many cases, Hays recasts the received historical narrative, emphasizing the prejudices her subjects faced, as in the case of the Protestant martyr Anne Askew: "The sex and age of the heretic aggravated, rather than softened, the malice of her adversaries, who could not pardon in a woman the presumption of opposing arguments and reason." A near-fine example, in handsome contemporary bindings. Six twelvemo volumes. Contemporary full tree calf; boards ornamentally ruled in gilt; red and black morocco spine labels lettered in gilt; spines ornamented, ruled, and lettered in gilt; marbled endpapers. Volume I irregularly paginated (as issued, collated complete), four pages of advertisements at rear of volume VI. Contemporary ink ownership signature of Mary Marriott on third fly leaf of all volumes except V. Light shelfwear and occasional spotting to bindings, some joints repaired.

Dalla dedica a Giovanni Acton: "Offriamo a V.E. nella presente collezione un saggio del nostro zelo nella stimabile commissione addossataci per lo sollievo de' poveri nelle Provincie. Nell'eseguirla è ognun di noi penetrato dal dolce sentimento di contribuire al bene de' suoi simili a sovvenirgli ne' loro bisogni ad indicare i mezzi da ripararli e prevenirli per lo avvenire. Queste idee ci han risvegliato il pensiero di riunire insieme per lo comodo generale ciò che di più interessante è stato sparsamente scritto intorno agli usi, vantaggi, e coltivazione delle patate. Ha ciò per oggetto il familiarizzare nel Regno le cognizioni di un ramo di agricoltura tendente ad una risorta di abbondanza per tutt'i tempi... L'esempio della Irlanda e della Francia salvate dalla penuria in due diversi rincontri col mezzo delle patate: le scoverte fatte e intorno alla salubrità di questo prodotto, ed alla molteplicità dei suoi usi per gli oggetti di sussistenza e di economia: le applicazioni fattene per lo più sano e meno dispendioso alimento de' poveri e per la nutrizione di ogni specie di animali domestici a noi preziosi". Rara raccolta di opere riguardanti le patate: La composizione della suppa economica giunta il metodo adottato in Napoli; Il pomo di terra, articolo estratto dal corso di agricoltura dell'Abate Rozier; Articolo estratto dal Dizionario Universale Economico stampato in Roma nel 1795: farina di patate, pane di patate, il tempo per la piantazione, il modo di cucinarle; Memoria dell'Abate Occhiolini: l'introduzione fatta in Roma delle patate, esperienza nel cuocere le patate; Ragionamento del Sig.

      , 0 - Manoscritto cartaceo in folio (mm 330x220) di carte 10, composte da un bifolio, che funge da copertina e reca il titolo, e da 17 pagine di testo. Ottima copia. Si tratta di un Parere richiesto al Bonati, uno dei più stimati Idraulici dell'epoca, sulla Vexata quaestio dell'immissione del fiume Panaro in Po. Il committente è il Condelegato Cittadino Costabili, Consultore di Stato, che poi farà pubblicare a proprio nome la Risposta in: "Opuscoli idraulici di T.Bonati, V. Brunacci, G. Morri, ecc.", Bologna, 1829 (pp. 230-242). Il manoscritto è con ogni probabilità autografo, è cioè la copia che il Bonati trattenne per sé affidando la stesura dell'altra ad un segretario. Il Bonati ideò l'Asta Idrometrica e pubblicò fra gli altri un importantissimo saggio dal titolo: Saggio sopra una nuova teoria del movimento delle acque pei fiumi, Pavia, 1785.

        Description des plantes nouvelles et peu connues, cultivées dans le jardin de J.M. Cels

      de l'Imprimerie de Crapelet, Paris 1803 - Folio, 100 engraved plates each with descriptive letterpress sheet; complete with the half-title; a large copy, edges uncut, in contemporary green quarter morocco gilt. One of the most elegant botanical books, this study of "new and little known" plants in the gardens of Jacques Philippe Martin Cels in Paris was the first of the three major works on exotic plants produced by the great Ventenat, and a superb example of this golden age of botanical illustration. Ventenat's work, which publishes a striking series of ten Australian specimens, represents the apogee of the French fascination with exotic botany. Cels, who had originally been a tax collector at the Paris barriers, had to change direction after the Revolution: he converted his private gardens in Montrouge, just south of Paris, into one of the foremost commercial nurseries in Europe, where he collected and sold numerous rare species and provided exotica for, among others, the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison.Altogether 100 rare species from Cels' gardens are described and illustrated here, the majority depicted by Pierre-Joseph Redouté with others the work of his brother Henri-Joseph, as well as Cloquet, Laneau, Maréchal and Sauvage. These include exotics from North America provided by André Michaux (1748-1802) and Louis-Agustin-Guillaume Bosc (1759-1828), from Africa provided by Pierre-Marie-Auguste Broussonet (1755-1834) and from the Near East and the Pacific provided by Jacques-Julien Houton de Labillardière (1755-1834). These Pacific and Australian specimens derived from the D'Entrecasteaux voyage on which, as it happened, Ventenat's younger brother Louis served as chaplain, but was one of those who died on the return journey.French interest in plants from the farthest reaches of the known world is confirmed by the inclusion of ten Australian plants here, seven of which were drawn by Redouté himself while five are given their earliest scientific notice. Grown from cuttings, they wintered in the Orangerie hothouse. Included are the Mimosa distachya, discovered by Felix la Haye on the east coast of New Holland during the 1792 visit of the D'Entrecasteaux voyage, as well as the Mimosa linifolia and the Melaleuca Hypericifolia (a full listing of the Australian plants is available on request).The cultivation of Australian species in European gardens had begun after the first species had been brought back by Joseph Banks (1743-1820) and James Cook (1728-1779), with the Royal Gardens at Kew amassing an important collection. The wars between Britain and France following the French Revolution of 1789, made Australian species very rare on the European continent. The Australian species in the Description des plantes were nevertheless acquired after 1792, with Cels' gardens subsequently being an important source for other botanical gardens on the continent.This book includes a fascinating two-page note by Cels detailing his background, and noting some of the correspondents who had helped him in his endeavours, including officers who sailed with D'Entrecasteaux and Baudin, but also English savants such as Sir Joseph Banks and William Aiton. This was the first great work Cels made in conjunction with Pierre Ventenat (1757-1808), botanist to Josephine, Lycée professor in charge of the Pantheon library and a member of L'Institut de France. Combining with Redouté, the three men went on to work together on the Choix des Plantes (1803-1808), as well as completing the third significant title in this impromptu series, the Jardin de la Malmaison, cataloguing Josephine's own magnificent collection, which also included many specimens from around the world, including some sent to her by Banks, Napoleon in Egypt, Baudin in Australia, and Alexander von Humboldt in South America. Some light foxing, a few bumps to binding, but a most attractive uncut copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Antique Print-COTTAGE-HOUSEWIFE-SPINNING-PIG-CAT-Singleton-Turner-1803

      - Original antique print, titled: 'The Industrious Cottage Wife'. It shows: a housewife, seated outside her cottage. Her young son is feeding the pigs, while a cat is seated next to her. She is spinning. Rare print. Original etching and mezzotint engraving, coloured a-la-poupee with watercolour highlights on a vellin paper type. Engraved by C. Turner after H. Singleton. Charles Turner (1773-1857) was an English mezzotint engraver and draughtsman. Through his mother's influence he had access to the famous gallery at Blenheim Palace. Turner moved to London in about 1789, was apprenticed to the engraver John Jones, enrolled in the Royal Academy Schools and worked for Alderman John Boydell, the important print publisher. Turner was skilled in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint, his diverse talents producing a large range of subjects covering topography and genre. His main interest, though, was portraiture, and the greater part of the more than six hundred plates he created during his career, were portraits. His close friendship with J.M.W. Turner, led to his engraving much of the artist's work, and to his engraving twenty-four of the plates for Liber Studiorum. He engraved many of the finest Henry Raeburn portraits, including Sir Walter Scott. A remarkable set of his engravings, "The Rivers of England", published between 1823 and 1827, confirmed his great ability as a landscape artist. He was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1828. Henry Singleton (1766-1839) was an English painter, born into an artistic family in London. He was mainly known for his portraits. Condition: Fair, given age. Margins irregular with small tears and paper loss, partly closed/repaired. One tear into the image. General age-related light toning and/or staining from handling. Please study scan carefully The overall size is ca. 19.7 x 27.8 inch. The image size is ca. 17.3 x 25.2 inch. The overall size is ca. 50 x 70.5 cm. The image size is ca. 44 x 64 cm.

        Tableau religieux et politique de l'Indostan, ou précis historique des révolutions de l'Inde, où l'on voit les manoeuvres employées par la Compagnie anglaise, pour s'emparer exclusivement du commerce, des terres et des manufactures des peuples indous, et assurer leur tyrannie par l'expulsion des autres nations européennes

      Chez Marchant 1803 - - Chez Marchant, A Paris 1803, In-8 (12,5x20cm), (4) xxiij, 472pp., relié. - Edition originale, rare. L'ouvrage est suivi de deux mémoires présentés en 1781, à Louis XVI, par l'auteur de cet ouvrage, contenant un plan pour anéantir la puissance anglaise dans l'Inde, et d'un troisième sur les moyens actuels d'y parvenir encore. Reliure en plein veau raciné d'époque. Dos lisse orné de fers à l'urne et au soleil. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Encadrement de grecques sur les plats. Un manque en tête. Traces de frottements. Un coin émoussé. Bel exemplaire, malgré quelques défauts. Après une histoire politique et religieuse de l'Indostan (la plus grande partie de l'Inde actuelle) qui est une transcription des "Mémoires historiques, politiques et économiques sur les révolutions anglaises dans l'Indostan" de J.-A. Pallerot de Saint-Lubin, 1782, l'ouvrage s'attache à établir l'histoire et l'actualité de l'occupation des régions de l'Indostan par les anglais, des diverses batailles entre anglais et indous, du commerce au Soudabar, au Bengale, au Guzurate. Le but de l'auteur est de donner des informations précises sur la présence anglaise (armée, commerce.) et des moyens envisageables de les chasser des terres indiennes. Dans son mémoire à Louis XVI, l'auteur dévoile plusieurs plans militaires pour reprendre l'Inde aux anglais ainsi que plusieurs mesures qui les rendraient impopulaires aux populations indigènes. Par une juste étude historique et culturelle, l'auteur cherche à démontrer que la présence anglaise est une injure à l'Inde, et que la France serait plus respectueuse et juste dans sa présence aux Indes. On remarquera qu'en dernière page, on trouve la mention "Fin de la première partie", mais la seconde, qui devait paraître plus tard et être occupée par divers mémoires sur l'occupation anglaise, n'a jamais été édité. L'ouvrage est un des plus importants témoignages sur les exactions des anglais en Inde au XVIIIe.

A gigantic survey of Egypt at the time of Bonaparte's conquests in 1798 and 1799, the work is divided into 13 volumes of engravings making up 892 plates, of which 72 colored, as well as presenting the splendors of the Egypt of the Pharaohs in 9 volumes. The other volumes discuss natural history and present a fascinating portrait of Coptic and Islamic Egypt as it was seen by Bonaparte's Eastern Armies. The 'Egyptian campaign', militarily a disaster, demonstrates, through the engravings of the Description d'Egypte, the scientific success it nonetheless became thanks to the 167 expert members of the Commission of the Sciences and Arts of the Institut d'Egypte [Egyptian Institute] who followed Napoleon's army. The Institut gathered together in Egypt the mathematician Monge, the chemist Berthollet, the naturalist Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire as well as numerous artists, engineers, architects and doctors. They were tasked with re-discovering modern and ancient Egypt and displaying its natural treasures as well as the know-how of its inhabitants. This edition, the so-called "Imperial" edition of the plates for the Description de l'Egypte was printed in four large formats, two of which were specially created for it and christened "Moyen-Egypte" and "Grand-Egypte". A special press was built to print it, the process extending over 20 years, from 1809 to 1829. The "Imperial" edition proved so popular that a second edition, this time in black and white and without the "Egypte ancienne et moderne" watermark - known as the "Royal Edition" - was published during the Restoration by the printing house of C.-L.-F. Panckoucke (Paris). The engravings of the Description d'Egypte owe a great deal to Baron Dominique-Vivant Denon, illustrator, diplomat, collector and later Director of the Musée Napoléon (the Louvre). His exploration of the South of Egypt gave Bonaparte the idea of sending the experts of the Institut there, thus creating a faithful and complete portrait of the area. This was the research gathered together from 1802 in the mammoth Description de L'Egypte. Denon embarked on this story of archeological exploration at the age of 51, reaching first Alexandria and then Cairo before exploring Upper Egypt. Along with the members of the Institut d'Egypte, the Natural History Museum's painter H.J. Redouté (brother of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, author of Roses), the mineralogist Dolomiue, and the draughtsman Joly, Denon then explored the Nile Delta and Lower Egypt. When, however, he joined the 21st Light Infantry Regiment as it marched across Upper Egypt in pursuit of the retreating Mameluks in November 1798, he found himself the only civilian. In the very midst of the battle itself, he reeled off sketches of the works of art that peppered his path right up to the threshold of the Sudan. He said that he had crossed "a country that is, apart from its name, entirely unknown to Europeans, and therefore everything was worth describing" (Voyages dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte pendant les campagnes de Bonaparte en 1798 et 1799, 1817). On his return to Cairo, the great general, spellbound by Denon's accounts and drawings ordered two commissions to be set up, led by the engineers Fourier and Costaz. They were tasked with the scientific study of the ancient remains in Upper Egypt; research that proved a significant contribution to the monumental Description d'Egypte, from which this plate is taken. ANCIENT EGYPTThese engravings therefore represent a unique body of material that contributed to Jean-François Champollion's deciphering of hieroglyphics, and which mark the beginning of the line of Mariette, Maspero and Carter, who would reshape the face of Ancient Egypt. They also started a craze that gave birth to the phenomenon of Egyptomania and the Orientalism of Delacroix, Fromentin, Marilhat, Decamps and Théophile Gautier. Financiers, politicians, merchants and all kinds of treasure-hunters made their way to the banks of the Nile in search of riches, following this rediscovery of Egypt. The originators of Egyptology, these plates were to have a hugely influential afterlife. NATURAL HISTORYThese engravings show the scientific genius of the French experts then working on the ground in Egypt, laying the foundations for its becoming a French colony. This colonizing project, which had been mooted since the reign of Louis XIV, was now accompanied - with Bonaparte's arrival - by an in-depth study of the country's fauna and flora thanks to the work of the most eminent naturalists, mineralogists, and entomologists of the day. The Description de l'Egypte shows all of this immense scientific undertaking through its engravings, which were done after drawings by members of the Academy of Science, including Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hillaire, Alire Raffenau-Delile and Henri-Joseph Redouté. In the words of Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, "We have gathered the material for the greatest work that a nation could hope to undertake. In mourning the fate of so many brave soldiers who - after so many glorious exploits - fell in Egypt, we shall be able to console ourselves that such precious works came into being." MODERN EGYPTThe genius of the experts of the Institut d'Egypte is revealed in the plates of the section known as "Modern Egypte". Architecture, industry, social organization, conditions of health, irrigation, music, and crafts, are all presented with exceptional precision and powers of description. The spirit of Diderot and d'Alembert's Encyclopédie runs through the work of the draughtsmen of the Description de L'Egypte, who accompanied the text volumes with numerous detailed plates, undertaking to produce a portrait of the local population that was imbued with both beauty and respect. Wealthy Pashas and simple artisan potters are sensitively represented here, going about their business in beautifully composed images that nonetheless do not fall into the traps of idealism or caricature. ISLAMIC ARCHITECTURE (the "Cairo" plates) The set of engravings to which this plate belongs constitutes one of the first complete studies of the monuments of Islamic Egypt in Cairo, bringing together maps, sections and elevations of mosques, mausoleums and fortifications, from the Tulunid era in the 9th century up to the Mameluk constructions contemporaneous with the arrival of the Bonapartist troops. At the same time, the architects and engineers of the Institut d'Egypte also made a big series of plates dedicated to civilian housing and edifices in Cairo, including both grander and more modest constructions, providing a precious picture of life in Cairo at the end of the 19th century. BAB AL FOUTOUH Bab el-Foutouh, " The Conquest Gate" marks the northern limit of Fatimid old Cairo. Rebuilt in 1087, it is highly defensive in nature owing to the turbulent climate in 11th Century Cairo, which saw a number of popular uprisings. An imposing gate, it has two semicircular towers with low-slung arches made of heavy blocks of stone anchored within the ramparts. The sizeable passage through the gate (4.85m wide by 6.79m high) has a shallow dome. BAB EL NASR Bab el-Nasr, "The Victory Gate" is on the northern wall of the Fatimid fortress in Cairo. Its two enormous rectangular towers were rebuilt in 1087 after a long period of popular uprisings. On this highly attractive frontal image signed Protain, one can admire the sculpted shields in the corners of the gate and on the towers, symbolizing victory and protection against invaders. After taking Cairo, Napoleon named all the towers along the wall of the fortress after the officers assigned to guard them. Their names are still engraved on the upper parts of the walls of the gate. SULTAN HASSAN MOSQUEThe massive architectural complex constructed by Sultan Hassan at the foot of the citadel in Cairo was built in the ostentatious style so characteristic of Mameluk architecture. Completed in 1356, the Sultan Hassan Mosque has a monumental gate and a 57m high minaret. This group of buildings, comprising a mausoleum that was never put to use, was strategically built on the site of a square that saw the start of a number of popular uprisings. The mosque was heavily inspired by Iranian models. Philae This plate is taken from a set of engravings dedicated to the Temple of Isis on the island of Philae. The final bastion of the worship of the ancient Egyptian gods, the temple of Isis was the last pagan temple to be in use before it was closed in the 6th century A.D. under Justinian. Construction on the temple began under the Ptolemies, a period of growth for the Isis cult. Isis was the sister and wife of Osiris and mother to Horus. Kom Ombo (Ombos) The Kom Ombo site, 40 kilometers from Aswan, is home to one of the best preserved ancient Egyptian temples, dedicated to Sobek, a crocodile god and Haroeris, a form of Horus. Built in the Ptolemaic era, it was actually founded during the XVIIIth Dynasty. Its massive Composite capitals and highly accomplished reliefs are captured accurately by the draughtsmen of the Institut d'Egypte, Jollois, Balzac and Cécile. The dual aspect of its design, intended for worship of two different divine triads - those of Sobek and Haroeris - is reproduced in great detail by the architects and engineers of the Egyptian campaign through this set of prints, which preceded the first archeological digs in the building by Auguste Mariette in 1828.Edfu This plate is taken from a series of views of the great temple at Edfu and the various buildings in its cultic complex. The temple of Horus, a jewel of Ptolemaic architecture and exceptionally well-preserved, is made up of a majestic entry gate and a hypostyle chamber, which are both extensively documented thanks to the engravings by the experts of the Institut d'Egypte. Begun in 237 BC by Ptolemy III and completed 180 years later under Tiberius, it proved an extraordinary sight for the draughtsmen come to explore the left bank of the Nile.Esna and its environs The town of Esna (Esneh or Latopolis in Bonaparte's time), lies fifty kilometers to the south of Luxor. The experts from the Institut de l'Egypte documented their discovery of its temple, dedicated to Khnum, one of the gods of creation who worked with clay and had the head of a ram; he controlled the life-giving flooding of the Nile, the source of fertility. He was associated with Nebt-uu, the mistress of the countryside and Menhyt, a goddess with the head of a lion. This temple, partially rebuilt during the Ptolemaic era, was added to right up to the reign of Tiberius. The draughtsmen also produced a number of views of the neighboring temples, most notably the less well-preserved temple of Contra-Latopolis to the north of Esna.Thebes Medinet-Habu Close to Thebes and Luxor on the left bank of the Nile, the city of Medinet-Habu is home to one of the most attractive temples of New Kingdom period Egypt, the mortuary temple of Ramses III. This dates from the middle of the 12th century BC, and is based on the famous Ramesseum of his predecessor, which it surpasses in size. A funerary temple celebrating the Pharaoh, the experts of the Institut d'Egypte set about creating cross-sections, plans and elevations, and most especially capturing its numerous bas-reliefs. The architects and draughtsmen also focused on the Royal Palace and its internal peristyle within the 12-metre fortress that encircles the religious complex, including the Temple of Amon, located at the south-east of the site and begun in the reign of Hatshepsut at the end of the 15th Century BC. Memnonium The Memnonium, a name used by visitors to the Valley of the Kings from 1750 to 1850, refers to a set of three royal buildings constructed during the New Kingdom: the Ramesseum, the Temple of Amenhotep III and the Temple of Sethi I. The draughtsmen and architects of Bonaparte's Institut, sent out on expedition across Upper Egypt from 1799 documented Thebes and the Valley of the Kings, even attempting to reconstruct some of the buildings on the basis of descriptions by Classical authors. The tomb of Ozymandias (one of the numerous names of Ramses II), in a very poor state, thus became the subject of very thorough study and an attempt to fill in its missing bits on the basis of the writings of Diodurus Siculus. This Greek historian of the Augustine period stayed in the valley of the Nile from 60-57 BC and his visit to the tomb of Ramses II is recounted in his monumental Bibliotheca Historica (Book I, XLVII-XLIX).At the same time, the experts also made extremely detailed studies and views of the Colossi of Memnon, all that remains of a huge memorial temple to Amenhotep III built on the road to the necropolis in the Valley of the Kings. These colossi were located at the entrance to the temple in front of a preliminary pylon made of brick. These two statues represent King Amenhotep III framed to the right by the great Royal Consort Tiy and to the left by the Queen Mother Mutemwiya. Hypogea and Biban el Moluk This plate is taken from a series of engravings of the hypogea in the Valley of the Kings (Biban el Moluk) in Thebes. Some are in color to show the vivid hues of the sarcophaguses and mysterious murals whose secret had yet to be broken by Jean-François Champollion. The draughtsmen of the Institut, including the famous Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, sent by Napoleon to cover Upper Egypt in 1799, capture with élan the royal mummies and the artifacts that accompanied the dead in their journey to the netherworld: urns, furniture, weapons, idols and the mummies of numerous mammals and birds. Karnak This plate is from a set on the Great Temple at Karnak, built during the New Kingdom at the time of Ramses III. This enormous complex is divided into three parts and is dedicated to the Theban Triad of gods, Amun, Mut and Khonsu. Its sculptures, internal bas-reliefs and sunken reliefs on the external facades are intricately captured by the engineers of the Institut, while the architects worked out the complex groundplan of this edifice, which was divided into facades, colonnaded halls and sacral spaces reserved for the temple priests. The alley of the monumental sphinx which links the site to the Luxor site was also the subject of a plate by Lepère, an architect from the Institut who took part in the expedition across Upper Egypt. Dendera The experts executed views and drawings of the temples of Dendera (or Tentyra), a city in Upper Egypt 60km to the north of Luxor. They have captured, with an exceptional degree of graphic artistry, the thick, round nature of the sculpted reliefs of the great Temple of Hathor, built under the Ptolemies in the first half of the 1st century BC. They also produced interesting views of the neighboring temples as well as a selection of reliefs of the "Dendera Zodiac", a chapel dedicated to Osiris and located beneath the temple of Hathor. Its famous astronomical relief was discovered by the French General Desaix - stationed in Upper Egypt by Bonaparte from 1798 - and taken back to France in 1821 by Claude Lelorrain; it is now on display in the Louvre. Another astronomical and cosmological relief on the ceiling of the hypostyle hall of the Temple of Hathor is the subject of a magnificent plate by Jollois and Devilliers. This covers seven soffit coffers of the ceiling and is an immense allegorical image showing several levels of consciousness: that of cosmogony, the constellations and their effect on the Earth, the creation of Man, and the Nomes of Egypt, symbolized by 21 pairs of wings topped with the red crown of Lower Egypt and the white tiara of Upper Egypt. The Pyramids at Memphis The Giza Plateau, near Memphis, is home to three of the most famous Ancient Egyptian Pyramids, the tombs of Cheops, Khafre and Menkaure, Pharaohs of the 4th Dynasty (2620-2500 BC). The experts of the Institut, hurrying to Memphis, explored the plateau and made numerous views of these majestic pyramids, towering over inhabitants and mounted figures. They also made minutely detailed views of the epigraphs on the tombs adjacent to the pyramids, as well as views of the Sphinx of Gaza near the Pyramid of Khafre. Views of Alexandria A plate taken from a set of view of Alexandria as it was found by Napoleon's army in June 1798. Embarking in Toulon on the 14th May, his troops disembarked at Alexandria a month later and explored this port city before heading towards Cairo to take the capital.
