About this Item

This German Egyptologist is renowned for discovering one of the earliest medical documents in existence -- an ancient Egyptian papyri giving a cancer treatment -- and sought to further popularize all things Egyptian through, of all things, historical romances set in Egypt. AQS, 1p, 4" X 4", n.p., 1885 August. Near fine. Faintly age toned. In Ebers interesting and stylized tiny script, in vibrant purple ink, he boldly pens four brief lines, signing handsomely and dating below. Because of Ebers' calligraphy a number of the words elude translation, and those that don't aren't sufficient to allow identifying this quotation. But an attractive item nonetheless, accompanied by a modern facsimile of a 19th century head-and-shoulders sketch of Ebers. Bookseller Inventory # 40415
