He created a public health service and a center for medical education in Egypt. His work is a survey of modern Egypt and Egyptian life and manners with a great deal of documentation, but in essence it is a work of propaganda and apologia for Mehmet Ali, whom Clot greatly admired. Some of the chapters are written by others authors ; of particular interest is the one on Islamic art by Pascal Coste, which is one of the earliest treatments of this subject" [Leonora Navari].Les planches hors texte représentent: Plan d'Alexandrie (colorié), Plan du Caire (en noir sur double page), Carte de l'Égypte (coloriée et dépliante), Disposition de l'arsenal d'Alexandrie (coloriée, avec serpente légendée), Plan de l'arsenal d'Alexandrie (colorié, avec serpente légendée), Plan des barrages du Nil (colorié, sur double page), Carte d'une partie du Delta (coloriée). ‎
