-- In August 1799, just over a year after Napoleon launched his
invasion of Egypt at Alexandria, a great discovery was made. Under the
leadership of Lt. Pierre Bouchard, French soldiers were
building up their defenses around the area of Fort St. Julian,
near the northern city of Rosetta, when a soldier or engineer
found in the ruins an ancient stone. With its cryptic inscriptions, it
was immediately recognized as an object of great importance. It was
sent to Cairo, where it was housed in the Institute d’Egypte. Members
of Napoleon’s special civilian corps dispersed around the
country were requested to go there at once. The rare map to the
right is of the mouth of the Nile, picturing Fort Julian, now
known as Fort Rashid.
edition (quite rare)
of "Travels in
Upper and Lower Egypt During the Campaigns of General
Bonaparte in That Country", written and illustrated by
Vivant Denon, published by
T.N. Longman &
O. Rees (London).
In the spring of 1797, with
a direct assault against Britain out of the question,
Napoleon Bonaparte suggested threatening Britain's rich
commerce with India by invading
Egypt. A unique feature of the expedition, which set
sail on 19 May 1798, was the large number and high caliber
of the attached civilians, among them Baron
Dominique Vivant Denon
(1747-1825). Denon was one of the founders of the Louvre
Museum, and was responsible for saving many works of art and
monuments of French culture from destruction during the
French Revolution. Denon was entrusted by Napoleon to
assemble a team of artists, archeologists, linguists and
scholars to study the antiquities of Egypt for the first
time since Antiquity. In addition to assisting in the
formulation of practical measures for the rule of
Egypt, the 167 savants
accompanied the army to every corner of the country.
Protected by the French troops, Denon was able to explore
the country extensively. This book contains many etchings of
Egypt, including the famous etching of the Sphinx of Giza
prior to the defacement.
Rare 3-Volume Set by
BACKGROUND: In the south, Vivant Denon reached Assouan; from Keneh he went to Kosseir. Their studies of the great
monuments of ancient Egypt paved the
way for the science of Egyptology. It was during this expedition that
the Rosetta Stone was discovered, which ultimately enabled people to
decipher and translate ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Denon's book
was the first important fruit of the French expedition to Egypt. This
early English translation
of the work (apparently the first English edition was printed a year
earlier), and contains a wealth of beautiful fold-out plates and maps,
including contemporary scenes from Denon's travels, plans of ruins,
engravings of the monuments and reproductions of some of the art in
the ruins and temples.

work is an important insight into the early work of one of

opinions regarding the monuments of Egypt. It is important
to remember that Champollion only ever made one trip to
Egypt as he died soon after his return. A great loss to the
science of Egyptology.
-- Jean-Francois Champollion, a 10 year old child saw
some of the Egyptian artifacts and enquired about the
strange pictures (Hieroglyphs) where he was told that
no one yet understands what these pictures means. Since that
time Champollion committed himself to decipher the
Hieroglyphs. By the age of 16 he became a professor
mastering 10 languages at the same time. Champollion then
compares the two cartouches of PTOLEMY & CLEOPATRA
found on the Rosetta stone which contains similar
characters. He continued deciphering more cartouches and
texts from the temple of El Karnak. It took Champollion 24
years until he published his work in a book " Precis du
systeme Hieroglyphique ". Sadly Champollion died by a stroke
on 1832 when he was 41 years old.

1821 RARE AUTOGRAPH LETTER
[Thomas Young to William Phillips].
A rare hand-written letter from scientist Dr. Thomas
Young, the founder of physiological optics and author of
the wave theory of light. He is also credited for helping to
solve the puzzle to comprehending ancient Egyptian
hieroglyphics. The letter, written in the third person
(and in his hand), betrays a distinct animosity towards
Young's new publisher, William Phillips. Concerning the
second edition of his Introduction to Medical Literature
in 1823 -- see book below), Young is not pleased that his suggestion of
a fee “forming exactly two arithmetical means between these
extremes” has not been accepted by Phillips.
[2 written sides
on black-bordered notepaper, originally folded in thirds.
Closed tear to margin passing through several words, no loss
of text or paper].
begs leave to observe, in reply to Mr. Phillips's note, in
which he says that “the sum proposed by Dr. Young is
greater than the work will bear”, that he did not propose
any sum whatever - that he told both Dr. Paris and Mr.
Phillips that he would make no proposal whatever, but that he
was ready to receive any proposals that might be made to him.
Phillips mentioned two sums as the probable extreme
limits of what the work might appear to be worth, and Dr.
Young mentioned two other sums forming exactly two
arithmetical means between these extremes, which was certainly
rather according to Mr. Phillips's preliminaries than making
any new proposals of his own.
is therefore at a loss to understand why Mr. Phillips should
be most averse at present to making an offer of any kind that
he was when he thought it worth while to offer a negociation,
which as it appears to Dr. Young, he has broken off without
any sufficient reason, though he was certainly at full liberty
to do so, in a legal point of view.
Phillips must be as good a judge of the sale of books as Dr.
Young but it does not appear by any means to Dr. Y. that the
sale of a second edition would be slower than that of the
first: the contrary being extremely likely to happen to any
work of established reputation, and especially to a work which
is intended to form the basis of the library of every
student in every department of the medical profession –
though certainly the second edition of this work would not be
likely to be purchased by many persons who are in
possession of the first.

and now an expanded and corrected 1823 edition by W.
Phillips, London). Thomas Young, M.D. F.R. & L.S.,
was a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the
Physician to St. George's Hospital. The letter above is
connected with this edition, stating that Dr. Young is not
at all pleased with William Phillips.
BACKGROUND: Dr. Thomas Young is
the man who undertook the
task had perhaps the keenest scientific imagination and the
most versatile profundity of knowledge of his generation —
one is tempted to say, of any generation.
Young (1773-1829) has been given credit for an enormous
number of scientific discoveries: in 1800, long before
Fresnel, he suggested and gave evidence for the wave theory
of light, against the Newtonian dogma of a particulate
system. Again challenging Newton, he proved in 1801 that the
visible spectrum was continuous and that the eye could
depend on just three color receptors. He was elected to the
Royal Society at the age of 21 and subsequently became its
foreign secretary under Joseph Banks. “Young has sometimes
been hailed as a child prodigy who, by the age of sixteen,
had not only mastered Latin and Greek but also possessed a
good working knowledge of several other languages and gained
a firm background in the sciences. He clearly possessed
considerable mental abilities, while his Quaker upbringing
encouraged the habit of hard work and proscribed frivolous
activities. So effective was his training that later in life
he claimed never to have wasted a single day...On several
occasions he traveled on the continent, where he met such
leading savants as Laplace, Arago, and Humboldt. In 1827 he
was honored by being elected one of the eight foreign
members of the Paris Académie des Sciences.” His
achievements are recognized on a plaque erected at
Westminster Abbey close to the spot where Newton was buried.
Dr. Thomas Young
Young had his attention called to the Rosetta Stone by accident,
and his usual rapacity for knowledge at once led him to
speculate as to the possible aid this tri-lingual
inscription might give in the solution of Egyptian
problems. Resolving at once to attempt the solution himself,
he set to work to learn Coptic, which was rightly believed
to represent the nearest existing approach to the ancient
Egyptian language. His amazing facility in the acquisition
of languages stood him in such good stead that within a year
of his first efforts he had mastered Coptic and assured
himself that the ancient Egyptian language was really
similar to it, and had even made a tentative attempt at the
translation of the Egyptian scroll. His results were only
tentative, to be sure. Yet they constituted the very
beginnings of our knowledge regarding the meaning of
hieroglyphics. Just how far they carried has been a
subject of ardent controversy ever since. Not that there is
any doubt about the specific facts; what is questioned is
the exact importance of these facts. For it is undeniable
that Young did not complete and perfect the discovery, and,
as always in such matters, there is opportunity for
difference of opinion as to the share of credit due to each
of the workers who entered into the discovery.
In fierce competition with Jean François Champollion (during the
Napoleonic Wars), he is jointly credited as the first decipherer
of the Rosetta Stone hieroglyphs, with the recognition that
certain symbols represented the sounds of a royal title.

1825 and 1855 commemorating Napoleon Bonaparte’s campaign in Egypt that
lasted from 1798 to 1801. The plate is transfer printed with what seems to
be hand coloring under the glaze. It has no damage or crazing but there is
minute bubbling of the transfer and glaze at the edges, which then goes
over to the back of the plate much of the way around to varying degrees.

Main Purpose For
Developing the Rosetta Stone Replicas
The Freeman Institute®
Black History collection of
well over 2,500 vintage
documents and artifacts, with the oldest piece dated
1553. The goal is to develop Black History galleries,
connecting the African American experience with galleries in major
U.S. cities and in selected cities internationally (parts of Canada,
Europe, Africa and South America and every Caribbean country) --
designed to educate and inspire this generation.
Each gallery will have a
wall dedicated to some of the White abolitionists who
sacrificed their time...and some their lives for the anti-slavery cause.
This vision also includes the
exhibition of replicas of the Rosetta Stone in
every gallery in the world.
Dr. Joel Freeman,
Foundation and Rosetta Classic, LLC are supervising the creation of a mold and the
fabrication of replicas.
A life-size, 3D reproduction of
the Rosetta Stone in each gallery provides a literal touchstone to
ancient times -- reminding people that Egypt is in Africa...not the
Middle East -- giving an opportunity to showcase the
accomplishments of other ancient African Kingdoms that
have passed down much of their history through oral
Songehay, Great Zimbabwe, Malian, etc.). The
exhibition of the replica also provides a context for
African American history, reminding visitors that
ancient African history did not start with slavery. Black History
started with inventiveness, creativity, royalty,
perseverance and so much more...providing a context
for all of the documents and artifacts exhibiting the
part African Americans played in the past four
centuries of American history.
