Egypt 1870. The monuments of ancient Egypt and the Biblical world often in the early photographs. French academic Francois Arago (1786-1853) mastered the new technology at that time in 1839 in order to “save time and effort and not to copy characters by hand, completely covering the historical monuments in Thebes, Memphis, Karnak and other places.” The New York Public Library has published a gallery of 9000 photographs and illustrations on the theme of the Middle East, made from the 17th to the 20th century.
