Description:

Fabulous map of Egypt by Homann, based on the travels of Paul Lucas (1664-1737) a French merchant, naturalist, physician and antiquarian to King Louis XIV who travelled extensively in Greece, Turkey, the Levant and Egypt, in three voyages (1699&#82111703), (1704&#82111708) and (1714&#82111717). Lucas is one of the earliest sources of information from Upper Egypt, visiting among other places Thebes and the Nile up to the cataracts.

Johann Baptist Homann (1663 - 1724)

Homann was the most important German cartographer of the 18th century. In 1715 the Holy Roman Emperor Charles the VI, appointed him Imperial Cartographer and in the same year he was also appointed a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Upon his death, the business passed to his son Johann Christolph (1701-1730) and in 1730 the business was continued by the Heirs to Homann up until 1848.
