Item description for In het land der Nijlcataracten (1883) (Ex Oriente Lux) by J.H. Insinger...

Jan Herman Insinger (1854-1918) lived and worked for almost 40 years in Egypt. However, he has remained relatively unknown, and Egyptologists generally only know him from the papyrus Insinger that is now in the Museum of Antiquities in Leiden. Insinger deserves greater fame. As a fervent traveler, photographer and art dealer, he knew Egypt as no other. He was friendly with most of the scientists of his time and his letters give good insight into the archeological world around the 1900's. At least one of Insinger's travel accounts has also been preserved--it concerns a journal of a trip through the Sudanese part of old Nubie in 1883. It is a moving story of an area relatively unknown by archeologists at the eve of the Mahdi uprising which would paralyze Sudan for almost 15 years. In addition to descriptions of the land and the people, geology and water conditions, flora and fauna, the text includes notes about mysterious monuments of different Nubian cultures. The fact that this whole country has now been submerged in the Aswandam makes this eyewitness account extremely valuable. Dutch text.
