1818 Map

One of my older maps, it comes from one of my favorite books in my collection.  It’s from a book written in French and details the journeys of Generals Bonaparte, Kleber and Menou in Egypt.  I acquired it from an antique book dealer in Torino, Italy. (Voyage historique en Égypte pendant les campagnes des généraux Bonaparte, Kléber et Menou. Printed inVersailles in 1818 and written by Dominique di  Pietro.)

This plate which was drawn by Denon in 1800 shows what today is the last standing obelisk in Heliopolis.  At approximately 68 feel high and 120 tons, it is quite impressive.  It was quarried in the XII Dynasty (1956-1911 bc) under direction of the Pharaoh Senusret I.  A bit of trivia:  Which country has the most Ancient Egyptian Obelisks?  No, it’s  not Egypt.  Italy and specifically Rome which has 13.
