Bonaparte's expedition to the Middle East 1798-1801
Napoleon in his time: The military campaign in the Land of Israel
The Collection “Napoleon and his Era”
at the National Library
Among the millions of items in the National Library of Israel collections is a cache of original documents, books, maps and medallions focused around the person and actions of Napoleon Bonaparte (1796-1821). The most important of these are arranged in several special collections of books and archival materials, which formed the foundation for the exhibition “Napoleon was Here! Bonaparte's Expedition to the Middle East, 1798-1801”.
The documents and letters shown in our exhibition are part of a singular collection called “Napoleon and his Era”, which was acquired by the polymath scholar and collector Abraham Shalom Yahuda (Jerusalem 1877 – New York 1951). Recently, the collection was re-catalogued and all of the items in it were digitized. It is now available to the public through the National Library of Israel's website.
