The work remains a fundamental resource for Egyptologists on both monuments in Egypt and Nubia. The plans, maps and drawings of tomb and temple walls are of a high degree of accuracy and reliability, and are often the only record of monuments that have since been destroyed or later reburied.
The plate volumes are arranged in six parts, in more or less chronological order: part 1) volumes I-II, Topographie und Architectur; 2) volumes III-IV, Denkmäler des Alten Reichs; 3) volumes V-VIII, Denkmäler des Neuen Reichs; 4) volume IX, Denkmäler aus der Zeit der Griechischen und Römischen Herrschaft; 5) volume X, Äthiopische Denkmäler; 6) volumes XI-XII, Inschriften mit Ausschluss der Hieroglyphischen.
The text did not appear until after Lepsius' death, when Edouard Naville and others edited his notes, and is not present with this set of plates, though it does include a prospectus, Vorläufige Nachricht über die Expedition, ihre Ergebnisse und derren Publikation. As the text was not published until 1897-1913 (in 5 volumes), the text and plates are rarely found together.
