The Rosetta stone by Robert Solé( Book )

32 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In July 1799 a French officer serving in the Delta made an interesting discovery. A granite block unearthed near the small town of Rosetta bore texts in three different scripts - Greek, demotic Egyptian and hieroglyphs. For the first time there was a real hope of decoding Egyptian writing. The Stone was soon stolen from the French by the British Army and removed to the British Museum in London, the gift of His Gracious Majesty, King George III." "Now there began a remarkable and highly competitive intellectual adventure in which some of the best minds of the time took part. In particular, Thomas Young, an English physician and polymath, and Johann David Akerblad, a Swedish diplomat, made valiant progress towards a solution, but the code was cracked by the driven and formidable French orientalist Jean-Francois Champollion. The texts of Ancient Egypt could now be read again after fourteen centuries."--Jacket

Dans cette ville cosmopolite, séparée de la capitale par un désert, chacun - musulman, chrétien ou juif - trouve sa place. On n'y vit pas vraiment ensemble, mais en voisins. Les amours entre personnes de communautés différentes ne vont pas jusqu'au mariage, sauf à provoquer des drames. Depuis la mort du fondateur, c'est son gendre, Haïm Lévy-Hannour, qui dirige l'hôtel, aux côtés de sa séduisante épouse, Nissa. Le Mahrajane fait office de club pour la bonne société locale. La famille du narrateur en est exclue, mais l'oncle Louca y a ses entrées, par la porte de service. Au cours des déjeuners dominicaux, ce personnage fantasque, adoré des enfants, révèle une partie de ses secrets. Le narrateur découvrira à son tour les coulisses du Mahrajane.
