In 1798, Napoleon Bonaparte conceived a plan to occupy Egypt and sent a team of scholars to gather data which resulted in a monumental set of volumes known as Description de l'Egypte. Join us for an informative lecture with Bruce Precourt on this amazing collection, highlighting its creation and impact. This lecture will be hosted in the beautiful Richard E. and Lucile Krug Rare Books Room and gives attendees an opportunity to see this lovely gem of a room up close.
