Description
An ideal introduction to the enormous and varied legacy of ancient Egypt, this oversized book presents more than 140 objects in detailed descriptions and color photographs, many with multiple views. From a larger-than-life lion in red granite to tiny amulets worked in gold, they are among the finest examples of their kind to have survived, and illustrate the development and achievements of Egyptian culture over a period of more than 3,000 years. Somewhat unique among catalogs of such items, this book considers these objects—sculpture, relief, papyri, hieroglyphic writing, jewelry, painting, cosmetic objects, and items of funerary equipment—from the perspective of accomplished artistic works as well as historical artifacts.

"Stunning color photos, learned essays on Egyptian art, and a history of the collection of the British Museum. A lovely book, worth reading and pouring over."—Bay Area Reporter (San Francisco)
