About this Item

Second edition, the best edition, "revised and greatly enlarged". With a foldout plate of the Rosetta Stone, 38 plates, over seventy illustrations within the text and examples of Egyptian symbols all throughout. 8vo, publisher’s original maroon cloth lettered in gilt on the spine, with pictorial decoration on upper cover in blind. xxiv, 513 pp. An attractive and well preserved copy, the text and plates fine, the cloth with some expected but unobtrusive evidence of use, former library ink stamp on front blank fly, no other library markings whatsoever. SCARCE, THE GREATLY IMPROVED AND EXPANDED SECOND EDITION. Budge significantly revised the text based on further study, this edition contains his new 1925 preface and over one hundred more pages of text then the first edition. It also contains many new illustrations, being primarily reproductions of objects in the British Museum. The study was originally written as the introduction to the catalogue of the Egyptian Collection in the Fitzwilliam Museum at Cambridge, it was thought that publication for the general public would be beneficial. Budge gives account "of the various methods of embalming; of the amulets and other objects which formed the mummy's dress; of the various kinds of coffins and sarcophogi in which he was laid; of the figures, stelae, vases, etc., which formed the furniture of the well appointed tomb: and also of the most important classes of tombs hewn or built in different dynasties.".
