This important scholarly-and-popular volume by the great British Egyptologist, E. E. Wallis Budge, appeared immediately after the great 1922 discovery by Howard Carter and George Herbert of the tomb of Tutankhamen (c.1332-1323 B.C.E., 18th Dynasty).
Dr. Budge's translation and publication of this volume--which included his translations of Pharaoh Akhenaten's "Hymns to the Aten"--helped clarify the enormity of this discovery as the work contributed to the cultural frenzy associated with "King Tut" and his golden era.
Exceptional condition! No underlining; pages bright and tight!
