Coptic Museum and Youssef Kamal

Posted on April 26th, 2014 in Egypt

So today my wife made me take a break from work to see the Coptic Museum in Old Cairo. I enjoyed the visit. In the evening I checked the website of the museum and found this reference, about the collections in its library: “The late Prince Youssef Kamal collection is in the Museum library with the French Expedition famous Déscription de l’Egypte.

That’s the son of Ahmad Kamal Pasha (APK), who inherited his father’s stud of Arabian horses, and sold it to Prince Mohammed Ali, Lady Anne Blunt (who bought three mares) and others in 1907. I will go back to the library to check out this collection, and look for horse-related materials.
