Abstract: This thesis discusses excerpts from the travel diary of Johann Michael Wansleben, who travelled Egypt in the seventeenth century as a collector for the Royal Library of the French King. Because attention has mainly been focused on his descriptions of Coptic Egypt this edition serves to give credit to the descriptions of Pharaonic buildings and sites.
