9780943221076: The Valley of the Kings: Horizon of Eternity

First published in Germany in 1982 and now in its fifth and first English-text printing, Hornung's study has been revised and updated with an annotated bibliography. It remains one of the most erudite yet accessible tours of the Egyptian royal tombs, a solid record of treasures now in peril from the depredations of tourists and the changing Nile valley climate. Not only does the distinguished Swiss Egyptologist make the tomb paintings real for readers by use of plans and 151 color plates, he also captures the panoply of ancient Egyptian belief and its impact on daily life by explicating the passages from the Books of the Dead which the paintings depict. Producing an English-text edition at this time is especially crucial; it cautions the world to pay heed to jewels it is about to lose. Intended for the lay public, it is also of interest to the scholar for its cogent discussion of ancient Egyptian thought.
