This blog is intended both as an instrument for researchers on early explorers in Egypt and Nubia, providing useful tools in the On-line Resources section (On-line books, Archives, Map Collections, Photo Collections, etc.), and as a place to publish original documentation and research on the subject (i.e. List of travellers, Accounts, Letters, etc.). Anyone who would like to contribute with suggestions or articles is warmly welcomed!

NEW BOOK: Le dessinateur Cherubini et la Grammaire de Champollion



Nadine Cherpion, Le dessinateur Cherubini et la Grammaire de Champollion, BiGen 43, IFAO 2012.

50 pp.
ISBN 978-2-7247-0626-0, (12 €)
 
"The counterproofs of Champollion's Grammar (3 fasc., 1836-1841), preserved at the IFAO, form the intermediate step between the author's original manuscript, today conserved at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, and the published version. With hieroglyphics hand drawn by Cherubini, they are mostly significant for the history of printing and, beside a sentimental value for Egyptology, they also have a real artistic value"
