Description de l'Egypte ou Recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française [Texte imprimé]

"ISIS is pleased to announce the availability of the web version of the Description de l’Egypte digital collection... Description de l’Egypte is a stupendous book that was compiled in 20 years starting from the date of Napoleon’s expedition to Egypt in 1798. The book is made up of 20 volumes: 11 plate volumes and 9 text volumes. It documented each and every aspect of the Egyptian history, antiquities, modern state, and geography of that period. The Description de l’Egypte digital collection was initially provided through a virtual browser on DVD with high resolution including features such as page turning, zooming and rotating. An Index Lookup search feature allowed users to select a keyword from a predefined list. The list was based on the Index volume that was created by H. Munier in 1943. As the user selects a keyword from the list, the search engine retrieves all text and plates that are relevant to the keyword. After the first release of the DVD in 2004, the project received tremendous appreciation from Library visitors and the general public, which stimulated ISIS to provide the collection online and free of charge...
