Synopsis: This volume is a study of the tombs of officials in the Theban necropolis, now lost, but documented in the manuscripts of travelers to Egypt in the early and mid 19th century. One such traveler was the accomplished draftsman Robert Hay, who made unpublished facsimile drawings which have been re-drawn by the author Lise Manniche for this book. The descriptions and drawings are used to reconstruct the decoration of tomb chapels in the Theban necropolis and to assess their ownership and place in history. The book also examines fragments of relevant wall decorations found in museums and other collections.
Product Description: Investigating records of early travellers and fragments of tomb paintings in museums and other collections, Lost Ramessid and Post-Ramessid Private Tombs in the Theban Necropolis is a follow-up to Lise Manniches Lost Tombs. A Study of Certain Eighteenth Dynasty Tombs in the Theban Necropolis (1986). The descriptions and drawings of 19th-century manuscripts are used to attempt to re-construct the decoration of tomb chapels in the Theban necropolis whose precise locations are no longer known and to assess their ownership and place in history.
