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).

The volume gives a valuable account of mission work among the Bechuanas, with notes on the customs of the natives, and a description of the earlier travels of the author and some information is afforded respecting the reformed savage Namaqua chief "Africaner". The appearance in Cape Town of this convert was the cause of much wonder and astonishment, his arrival having been awaited with considerable scepticism by Lord Charles Somerset, who was much struck with this example of the results of missionary enterprise, and who "expressed his pleasure at seeing thus before him one who had been the scourge of the country and the terror of the border colonists."
