Synopsis:

Maybe the most stunning presentation of this book in 3300 years: For the first time in 3,300 years, The Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Book of Going Forth by Day: The Papyrus of Ani is showcased in its entirety in seventy-four magnificent color pages.

Egyptian mythology: Upon death it was the practice for some Egyptians to produce a papyrus manuscript called the Book of Going Forth by Day or the Book of the Dead. A Book of the Dead included declarations and spells to help the deceased in the afterlife. The Papyrus of Ani is the manuscript compiled for Ani, the royal scribe of Thebes. Written and illustrated almost 3,300 years ago, The Papyrus of Ani is a papyrus manuscript with cursive hieroglyphs and color illustrations. It is the most beautiful, best-preserved, and complete example of ancient Egyptian philosophical and religious thought known to exist.

Egyptian mysteries of life and death: The Egyptian Book of the Dead is an integral part of the world's spiritual heritage. It is an artistic rendering of the mysteries of life and death. For the first time since its creation, this ancient papyrus is now available in full color with an integrated English translation directly below each image.

One of humanity's earliest and finest spiritual treasures: The Chronicle Books edition of The Book of Going Forth by Day was first published in 1994, revised in 1998, and now with this third revised edition, the entire corpus of this critical work is given its most accessible and lavish presentation ever.

This twentieth anniversary edition of The Egyptian Book of the Dead has been revised and expanded to include:

  • Significant improvements to the display of the images of the Papyrus
  • A survey of the continuing importance of ancient Egypt in modern culture
  • A detailed history of Egyptian translation and philology since the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in 1799
  • And, a state-of-the-art Annotated Bibliography and Study Guide for Ancient Egyptian studies

About the Author: Carol A. R. Andrews served as Assistant Keeper/Senior Research Assistant in the Department of Egyptian Antiquities at the British Museum from 1971 to 2000.

James Wasserman is an author and book designer whose innovative vision shaped this unique book.

J. Daniel Gunther is an Egyptological scholar and the author of several works on esoteric symbolism.

Dr. Raymond O. Faulkner (d. 1982) was a renowned British Egyptologist, the translator of many important ancient texts, and the author of numerous scholarly publications.

Dr. Ogden Goelet, Jr. is a Clinical Professor of Egyptian Language and Culture in the Department of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at New York University.
