The Lost Manuscript of Frédéric Cailliaud

Arts and Crafts of the Ancient Egyptians, Nubians, and Ethiopians

Edited and translated by Andrew Bednarski

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

  • A landmark Egyptology publication of the long-lost, never-before-published, privately owned complete manuscript of the early 19th century French explorer, Frédéric Cailliaud.
  • Full of fascinating and informative color illustrations together with a translation of the original French descriptions and explanatory material by the editor.
  • A "must-have" for Egyptology libraries, scholars, and lovers as many of the monuments depicted in Cailliaud's illustrations are now lost or damaged.
