A near Fine set of this major work on Egyptology. Written by a prominent 19th-century Egyptologist, this three-volume book examines the private life, government, laws, arts and religion of the ancient Egyptian people. After its publication in 1837, this title remained the single best authority on ancient Egyptian culture and history for the next 50 years. John Gardner Wilkinson based this work on a 12-year residency in Egypt in which he visited nearly every known ancient Egyptian site. His work would earn him the nickname "the father of British Egyptology". Arriving in Alexandria in 1821, Wilkinson spent twelve years in Egypt and Nubia. In 1823, having learnt to read and write Arabic, he accompanied David Burton to the eastern desert of the Upper Nubia publishing his findings in the journal of the Geographical Society in 1932. He twice ascended the Nile as far as the second cataract and in 1827 carried out major excavations of tombs at Thebes, the findings of which he published in his 'Topographical Survey of Thebes' in 1830. His 'Manners and Customs' is considered the standard work on ancient Egypt, wherein "the statements of ancient writers about Egypt, together with the results of modern excavations and researches conducted by the author and others, were lucidly arranged, explained in a fascinating style, and richly illustrated with plans, engravings, and coloured plates"(DNB. v.XXI; p274-75) Two further volumes on Egyptian religion and mythology were added in 1841. Wilkinson died at Llandovery in 1875; ten years earlier he had presented his collection of Egyptian antiquities to Harrow school accompanied by an elaborate catalogue. Book. Seller Inventory # 7004
