About this Item

2 volumes. A new edition, revised from the larger work "MANNERS AND CUSTOMS OF THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS." A copy with pleasing provenance. With 500 finely accomplished illustrations throughout the two volumes, including a number of woodcuts newly produced for this work, others being reprinted or reproduced from illustrations in the earlier work, many are full or near-full page and there is a long panoramic fold-out in one volume. 8vo, publisherís original dark brown-black cloth, gilt lettered and decorated in blind on the spines, the covers paneled in blind. xvi, 419; x, 438, 32 ads. A fine set of books rarely found so, the cloth completely without fading, bright, fresh and solid with only the lightest bit of age evidence, internally very fine indeed. A VERY FINE COPY OF AN IMPORTANT AND VERY ACCESSIBLE VERSION OF WILKINSON'S CORNERSTONE WORK IN ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HISTORY and of the most important works on the ancient Egyptians. Wilkinsonís acute observations and use of exhaustive illustrations of the manners and customs of an ancient people as depicted by the monuments and records make his work an absolute textbook on the subject with the authorís highly important explanations and comparisons of Egyptian and Greek notions. The purpose of this edition was not only to provide a shorter more digestible version of his work, but also to included new material added after the author's revisits to Egypt. This set with the fine engraved ex-libris of Jeremiah J. Colman, popular philanthropist, M.P., and third family member to head one of England's oldest still-existing brands, Colman's Mustard.
