[en] In 2007 the facsimile edition of an original manuscript written by a French soldier of the Bonaparte’s Expedition in Egypt was published. Illustrated by naive coloured plates by the hand of the author, this document relates, almost day after day, the French Expedition in Egypt and Syria. It describes the main battles between the French troops and the English and Mameluks forces, but also the discovery of an exotic country and its culture at the end of the18th century, from a young revolutionary French soldier’s point of view. The purpose of this paper is to highlight a second version of this personal Description de l'Egypte, probably written shortly after the first one. A preliminary study shows that this variant, still unpublished and mentioned here for the first time, is longer and more detailed. Future researches will have to explain why those two versions were written and now coexist.
