Dealer: Biblio, Setton Book Collection
Description: 578 pages, marbled end-papers. A number of scuff marks, corners bumped and a little foxing here and there, but otherwise a tight clean copy with no tears or damage; interior of book in very good condition, with a few pencil marks, including owner's name. First edition of Lepsius's (1810-1884) famous and (very readable in translation by the Horner sisters) account of the 1842-45 expedition which arguably laid the foundation for virtually all serious subsequent Egyptological study. Lepsius, a highly accomplished Prussian, was the first professional, serious scholar to study the antiquities of Egypt, travelling from Thebes to Khartoum, discovering the Decree of Canopus, adding significantly to the understanding of hieroglyphics, and producing a compendium of Egyptian antiquities which is still valuable today. These letters were written to give a more general audience access to the excitement and adventure of discovery and a sense of what it meant to travel the Nile. Date: 1853. Henry G. Bohn [US]

Although an official account of the expedition was published as >Denkmäler aus Ägypten und Äthiopien (Berlin: 1849-1858)<, Lepsius `felt that an account of the external circumstances of the expedition was also necessary. He decided to publish his letters describing the day-to-day activities of himself and his party, and these letters, written to Frederick of Prussia, von Humboldt, Bunsen, and others, have been produced with very little editing from the originals`. - Die deutsche Ausgabe lautet: Lepsius, [Karl] Richard: Briefe aus Aegypten, Aethiopien und der Halbinsel des Sinai . erschienen1852. "Drei Jahre durchforschte Lepsius das Niltal bis weit über Khartoum hinaus nach pharaonischen Hinterlassenschaften. Die Ergebnisse in Form von Zeichnungen, Aufmessungen, Abformungen und Beschreibungen übertrafen vor allem in graphischer Genauigkeiten alles bisher Überlieferte. Sie wurden zur Grundlage für die Erforschung der altägyptischen Kultur in allen Bereichen und dienen, publiziert in den berühmten `Denkmälern aus Aegypten und Aethiopien` (12 Bde., 1849-59) . noch heute als unentbehrliches Quellenmaterial" (NDB XIV, S. 308 ff.). Abgesehen von der wissenschaftlichen Aufarbeitung veröffentlichte Lepsius auch diese "Briefe", um weiteren Kreisen ein Bild von seiner Expedition zu vermitteln; sie waren ursprünglich an den König, dessen Minister Eichhorn und Alexander von Humboldt gerichtet, letzterem verdankte Lepsius die Verwirklichung und Auswertung dieser Reise."- Versicherter Versand.

Walton, 2 folding maps (map of Egypt, Nubia and the upper Nile/ map of the peninsula of Mount Sinai). Spine ends frayed, with small cuts and small loss, cut along joints repaired, boards faded, internally book in very good condition. - Egyptologist Lepsius (1810-1884) personal account of the Prussian Expedition to Egypt of 1842/45, which travelled from Alexandria up the Nile to Nubia, and across the desert from Fayyum to the Libyan Desert. Although an official account of the expedition was published as >Denkmäler aus Ägypten und Äthiopien (Berlin: 1849-1858)<, Lepsius `felt that an account of the external circumstances of the expedition was also necessary. He decided to publish his letters describing the day-to-day activities of himself and his party, and these letters, written to Frederick of Prussia, von Humboldt, Bunsen, and others, have been produced with very little editing from the originals`. - Die deutsche Ausgabe lautet: Lepsius, [Karl] Richard: Briefe aus Aegypten, Aethiopien und der Halbinsel des Sinai . erschienen1852. "Drei Jahre durchforschte Lepsius das Niltal bis weit über Khartoum hinaus nach pharaonischen Hinterlassenschaften. Die Ergebnisse in Form von Zeichnungen, Aufmessungen, Abformungen und Beschreibungen übertrafen vor allem in graphischer Genauigkeiten alles bisher Überlieferte. Sie wurden zur Grundlage für die Erforschung der altägyptischen Kultur in allen Bereichen und dienen, publiziert in den berühmten `Denkmälern aus Aegypten und Aethiopien` (12 Bde., 1849-59) . noch heute als unentbehrliches Quellenmaterial" (NDB XIV, S. 308 ff.). Abgesehen von der wissenschaftlichen Aufarbeitung veröffentlichte Lepsius auch diese "Briefe", um weiteren Kreisen ein Bild von seiner Expedition zu vermitteln; sie waren ursprünglich an den König, dessen Minister Eichhorn und Alexander von Humboldt gerichtet, letzterem verdankte Lepsius die Verwirklichung und Auswertung dieser Reise."- Versicherter Versand.
