About this Item

Excellent New Book. The invention of the book brought to the cultures of the Near-East and the Mediterranean started in Egypt. It was under the shade of the Megalithic Egyptian temples, that the first 'papyrus scroll' was developed and in the great libraries of the Ptolemaic period that the idea of the 'papyrus codex' was born many centuries later. Without the Egyptians, writing could still be limited to materials that could have delayed considerably the expansion of information, education and learning. Prof. Cerny's account of Paper and Books in Ancient Egypt, is the most complete, documented and depend-able study available. In its compact form, it contains more information and facts than any other reference work on the subject. 37 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 200003
