Johann Michael VANSLEB & VANSLEBEN

Nouvelle relation en forme de journal, d'un voyage fait en Egypte. En 1672. & 1673

Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1677, in-12 (8,5x15,5cm), (16) 423pp. (17), relié.


First edition, rare and precious. Full Sheepskin brown time. Back tooled raised. Epidermis together. Lacks the joints head cover; and tail to the upper joint. A dull corner. Important relationship for the western KNOWLEDGE Egypt. Vansleb, German philologist and theologian, began serving Colbert for a proposed trip to Ethiopia, but it never went further than Egypt, where he spent 20 months to observe and collect information, multiplying excursions and trips . Vansleb never returns to the descriptions that have already been made by others (the pyramids), aware of its readers deliver entirely new information. If this is not the first relationship on Egypt, this is the first of a man long resident in the country; anyway it is one of the first, but the first in this way. The author had already made a first time in Egypt, he had pulled a narration in Italian, but it did not have that knowledge of Arabic which allows him contact with the population, and it was not remained in the country. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
