Edward William Lane (1801-76) published this work in two volumes in 1836. Resident in the country for many years, and fluent in Arabic, he devoted his life's study to Egypt. A fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the Institut de France, Lane translated One Thousand and One Nights and selections from the Koran. His major work was an Arabic-English lexicon; a monumental undertaking, he was working on the sixth volume when he died. Volume 1 of Modern Egyptians offers detailed accounts of climate, housing, education, domestic life, religion, law, government, language, literature, sciences and magic. Volume 2 focuses principally upon Cairo's vibrant public space, covering drug use, games, street music and dancers, among much else. A bestseller in its own day, this well-illustrated work remains a key text for students of nineteenth-century Egypt and the Arab world.

About the Author:


Edward William Lane (1801-76), a name known to almost everyone in all the many fields of Middle East studies, was the author of a number of highly influential works: An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1836), his translation of The Thousand and One Nights (1839-41), Selections from the Kur-an (1843), and the Arabic-English Lexicon (1863-93). In 2000, his long-forgotten manuscript Description of Egypt was published for the first time by the AUC Press.

Jason Thompson is currently a visiting professor at Bates College. He is the editor of Lane's Description of Egypt (AUC Press, 2000) and the author of A History of Egypt: From Earliest Times to the Present ( AUC Press, 2008) and Edward William Lane, 1801-76 ( AUC Press, 2010).
