Voyage en Egypte

Is the title of a book I picked up from a charity shop yesterday. It's in French and is a sort of coffee table paperback book. It is a record of David Roberts's journey around Egypt in 1839 (at least that's what my schoolboy French has worked out).

The book is full colour and comprises 92 pages. 46 pages are given over to Roberts's paintings of Egyptian antiquities with each having a facing page of description/explanation. It is frankly superb and is choc full of ideas for games buildings. Not bad for the princely sum of £1.50!

Its ISBN is 9782878300291.

Here's a selection of the images I photographed:

Updates as they happen, chumrades!
