Booklet with the complete part of Egypt From the book Voyage au Levant By Corneille Le Brun Edited: Delft (Holland) 1700 This is the edition of 1700 in French The booklet is composed by 57 pages p. De Bruyn had to disguise his activities because this was a repressive period during the Ottoman rule when foreigners were regarded with suspicion and the making of "graven images" was prohibited. De Bruyn avoided detection by pretending to be picnicking with two Franciscan monks who stood guard while he made his drawings.
His works are particularly historically valuable because of their accuracy. Please check out my other items.
