After Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798, Western artists and archaeologists flocked to the region to record its wonders. This catalogue of the author's own remarkable collection of art and printed works spans the entire 400 years of Ottoman rule, and includes rare works by David Wilkie, Edward Lear and David Roberts. Featuring hundreds of images in full colour, it offers an unequalled glimpse of topography, villages, buildings and customs, many of which have now disappeared or changed beyond recognition.
