Ippolito Rosellini and the Dawn of Egyptology


One of the pioneers of modern Egyptology, and among the first to benefit from the deciphering of the hieroglyphic language, Ippolito Rosellini is celebrated in this volume. It accompanies an exhibition of 50 of his most significant drawings, manuscripts and letters, drawn from the collections of Pisa University Library. Essays provide further context, exploring his career and influence, as well as the formation and significance of the collections associated with him in Pisa and Florence.
