Im Schutz der französischen Armee durchzog er das Land. (...) Sein Reisewerk erschien 1802, die "erste wichtige Frucht der Aegyptischen Expedition". Es ist in Tagebuchform gehalten, ausgezeichnet durch lebendige, ja briliante Darstellung. In den Mittelpunkt der Betrachtung rücken immer wieder die Altertümer des Landes, war doch der Zweck seiner Reise, wie er selbst bemerkt, die Untersuchung der Denkmäler gewesen. Doch das Land selbst und seine Bewohner kommen nicht zu kurz." (Henze). "Denon's work has been justly praised. As a member of the Commission des Sciences et Arts which accompanied Napoleon's expedition to Egypt, he remained in Egypt for thirteen months, working continuously to record the Egyptian monuments. He was the first to reveal the richness of Egyptian art to Europe." (Atabey).

- Horizontal fold; sm. stain in text; trifle frayed.

= Dutch broadside on the French cause célèbre of the conviction and execution of the Toulouse merchant Jean Calas in 1761/62. His son was found strangled in the family home. The suspicion fell on the father, because of the religious tensions within the family, the family hugenots and the son converted to catholicism. Jean Calas was found guilty and was executed after being tortured. The second son met, while in exile, Voltaire and convinced him of the innocence of his father. In order to acquit the father, Voltaire wrote a pamphlet on the case. The case was reopened and after investigation, Jean Calas was posthumously rehabilitated.
