Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Legends of Our Lady Mary the Perpetual Virgin and Her Mother Hanna Vllis the only copy of the Life of Hanna In Ethiopic known to me. Two of the manuscripts were large handsome volumes about 16 inches square, and each contained a good selection of the Miracles of the Virgin mary, illustrated with many full-page pictures painted in bright colours which were intended to illustrate the texts of the Miracles. The older of these mss. Was written in the xvith century and the other about a century later; each had been made for the use of a royal personage. Another manuscript contained the Life of Mab a a seyon, a comparatively modern Ethio pian saint, and the Life of Gabra krestos, a prince who abandoned his royal state and home and parents, and became a mendicant monk. These Lives were illus trated by a large series of coloured pictures, which are of Special interest as they portray events in the daily life of the modern Abyssinians: I sent to Lady Meux a description of these mss. Pointing out their interest and importance, and their great value from an artistic point of view. I also told the Keeper of Oriental Manu scripts in the British Museum of them, and urged him to attempt to acquire them for the National Collection. But his official financial position was such that it was impossible for him to make an offer for them which Mr. Quaritch would accept, and so the whole group of mss., together with a few smaller works, became the property of Lady Meux, who added them to her Col lection of Egyptian and Sudani antiquities preserved in the museum at Theobalds Park. The nucleus of this Collection was made by Sir Henry and Lady Meux when they visited Egypt In 1878 and 1882. In the former year Lady Meux with a small party succeeded In getting as far south as Sarras, and they visited Semnah and Kummah, and some of the forts In the Second Cataract between Sarras and Wadi Halfah. On their way down the Nile from Aswan Lady Meux picked up several objects of Interest among thembeing the important figures of Nebseni and his wife, who ?ourished about b.c. I 550. A substantial part of the Collection as it was in 1897 was made by myself in Egypt under permission from the Trustees of the British Museum, and the total number of Egyptian objects in the Theobalds Park Museum was one thou sand four hundred. In 1886 Mr. Walter Ingram pre sented to Lady Meux the now notorious mummy and coffin of nes-amsu (nes-menu), a prophet of the god Menu at Panopolis about b.c. 350. Many absurd stories have been published about this mummy, which it has been alleged caused the death of Mr. Ingram, and it will be well to state the facts concerning its acqui sition, which I had direct from him and from the natives at Luxor who were present when he purchased it.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Legends of Our Lady Mary the Perpetual Virgin and Her Mother Hanna The present volume, containing translations of all the important Ethiopic Legends of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the companion volume of translations of the Ethiopic versions of the Miracles of our Lady, are supplements to the reproductions of the Lady Meux Mss., Nos. 2-5, which Lady Meux printed for private circulation in 1899. Many scholars and others have wondered how these fine Mss. became detached from the great Makdala Collection which the British Army brought to England in 1868, and how they found their way into her possession. And as they have also asked why she rendered such a signal service to Ethiopic studies by printing the original texts, with English translations and costly coloured facsimiles of the pictures - a work entailing great expense, and one which none before her had undertaken - I print here a short account of the way in which she acquired them. In the spring of 1897 Lady Meux went to the establishment of Mr. Bernard Quaritch in Piccadilly to purchase a copy of Ludolf s Historia AEthiopica. Finding that she had been reading a translation of the Ethiopic Version of the History of Alexander the Great, he took the opportunity of showing her a group of fine Ethiopic MSS., which he had recently acquired from an officer who had served in the British Expedition to Abyssinia in 1867. She telegraphed to me asking me to go and examine the manuscripts and to report upon them to her without delay. I did so, and Mr. Quaritch put the manuscripts before me. The oldest of them was a small 4 to volume containing a Life of Hanna, the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary; it was illustrated with archaic Ethiopian pictures of Hanna and her husband Joachim, the Birth of the Virgin, etc., and was written in the XVth century.
