Chauve-Souris D'Egypte [Bats of Egypt] (1809)
by Geoffrey St. Hilaire (French, 1772-1844)
The French campaign in Egypt and Syria was Napoleon's Bonaparte's invasion of Ottoman territories in the name of protecting French trade interests. An unusual aspect of the expedition was the inclusion of many scientists and scholars.
This print is the first plate from the Histoire Naturelle volumes of the books containing the various animals, plants, and rocks that French scholars discovered during the Egyptian campaign. This plate depicts three species of bats: the Naked-Bellied Tomb Bat, the Hollow-Faced Bat, and the Common Pipistrelle Bat.
