About this Item

3 volumes. First editions, volume one being fourth impression of the first edition. In the rare illustrated dustjackets. With over 400 illustrations from photographs. 8vo, publisher’s original mustard cloth lettered and handsomely decorated in gilt and black with scarab design on the upper covers, spines lettered in gilt. xxiii, 223, index; xxxiv, 269, index; 243, index. A very fine and bright set, the rare dustjackets showing some edge-wear, occasional tears and some evidence of tape repair, yet still intact and mostly complete. VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITIONS IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKETS. The story of what must be the most famous archaeological excavation of all time, with the possible exception of Schliemann's discovery of Troy. Carter writes that the feeling of awe was overwhelming when, after clearing the stairway and steep descending passage, he entered the Antechamber to the tomb, where he beheld in the hypogeum for the first time the splendor of Imperial Egypt dated fourteen centuries before Christ. The sight was so gorgeous, so sumptuous in its splendour as to be bewildering, almost overwhelming. And the extent of the discovery took he and his companions by utter surprise both in its totality and in the fact that it was utterly intact. It has remained so to this day. Both awe inspiring and bewildering whenever the treasures are beheld, they are only the fruits plucked from one of the most extraordinary and exciting archeological adventures ever made. The story of the travails and successes of the expedition and its members remains even today as one of the great books of modern history. Complete first edition sets in dustjackets are very scarce indeed. Bookseller Inventory # 27102
