= Hilmy II, p.111; Gay 2732; Henze IV, p.85ff. and Howgego II, P24. Welsh mining engineer who initially came to Egypt in 1845 to prospect for coal for the governor Mohammed Ali, but eventually earned his money as elephant hunter and ivory trader, and while travelling explored the area of the Bahr-el-Ghazal to the west of the Nile. "(...) In 1858 he acted as British vice-consul in Khartoum, and in the following year returned to England to raise funds for further trade. He brought with him a valuable map of the Upper Nile, which was widely consulted by John Hanning Speke prior to his second journey. By prior arrangement, Petherick returned via the Nile to Khartoum, where in 1862 he entertained Samuel Baker, then in February 1863 proceeded south to rendezvous with Speke, who was traveling northward, at Gondokoro. When Petherick and his wife arrived a few days late, despite having spent a year struggling overland, Speke condemned Petherick for having squandered the money he had been given by the Royal Geographic Society to provide support for his expedition and accused him of being more interested in elephant hunting and slave trading. As a result of Speke's accusations, Petherick was removed from his post as vice-consul and returned to England. Although Petherick retaliated with counter-argument, he never fully re-established his reputation." SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE LXIII.

Im Schutz der französischen Armee durchzog er das Land. (...) Sein Reisewerk erschien 1802, die "erste wichtige Frucht der Aegyptischen Expedition". Es ist in Tagebuchform gehalten, ausgezeichnet durch lebendige, ja brilliante Darstellung. In den Mittelpunkt der Betrachtung rücken immer wieder die Altertümer des Landes, war doch der Zweck seiner Reise, wie er selbst bemerkt, die Untersuchung der Denkmäler gewesen. Doch das Land selbst und seine Bewohner kommen nicht zu kurz." (Henze). "Denon's work has been justly praised. As a member of the Commission des Sciences et Arts which accompanied Napoleon's expedition to Egypt, he remained in Egypt for thirteen months, working continuously to record the Egyptian monuments. He was the first to reveal the richness of Egyptian art to Europe." (Atabey).
