The antiquities, natural history, ruins and other curiosities of Egypt, Nubia and Thebes, exemplified in near two hundred drawings taken on the spot by Frederic Lewis Norden, member of the Royal Societies of London, Paris and Copenhagen, and commander of a vessel sent by the King of Denmark to collect materials towards explaining the history of those counties, Martin Teuscher.
A Danish explorer and naval captain, Norden, at the bequest of the King of Denmark made a celebrated voyage through Egypt to Sudan in 1737–1738. On the way he made abundant and scrupulous notes, observations and drawings of everything around him, including people, pharaonic monuments, architecture, landscapes and natural history. On his return, he became a fellow of the Royal Society in London, but died of tuberculosis before his works could be published.
