(033963) Burleigh, Nina. Mirage: Napoleon's Scientists And The Unveiling Of Egypt. New York: Harper, 2007. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 286 pages. Fine in Fine DJ. B&W Illustrations. Small thin black remainder mark on bottom edges. Two centuries ago, only the most reckless Europeans dared traverse the Middle East. Its history and peoples were the subject of myth and speculation-- and no region aroused greater interest than Egypt. It was not until 1798, when an unlikely band of scientific explorers traveled from Paris to the Nile Valley, that Westerners received their first real glimpse of what lay beyond the Mediterranean. Under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte, a small corps of Paris's brightest left the safety of their laboratories, studios, and classrooms to embark into the unknown-- some never to see French shores again ISBN: 9780060597672 (Napoleon I, Egyptology, Egypt, Antiquities, French Occupation)
