An account of the manners and customs of the modern Egyptians by Edward William Lane( Book )

124 editions published between 1835 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fist published in 1836, this classic book has never gone out of print, continuously providing material and inspiration for generations of scholars, writers, and travelers, who have praised its comprehensiveness, detail, and perception. Yet the editions in print during most of the twentieth century would not have met Lane's approval. Lacking parts of Lane's text and many of his original illustrations (while adding many that were not his), they were based on what should have been ephemeral editions, published long after the author's death. Meanwhile, the definitive fifth edition of 1860, the result of a quarter century of Lane's corrections, reconsiderations, and additions, long ago disappeared from bookstore shelves. Now the 1860 edition of Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians is available again, with a useful general introduction by Jason Thompson."--Jacket

"Description of Egypt was the product of Lane's first research trip to Egypt from 1825 to 1828. Comprising nearly 300,000 words and 160 illustrations, it is a fascinating and multifaceted work. Its basic structure is a travelogue that recounts Lane's travels through Egypt and Nubia. Onto that framework, Lane added extensive excursions into Egyptian history, geography, city and village life, and especially antiquities, as he presented detailed descriptions of most of the major archaeological sites between Alexandria and the Second Cataract - all in polished prose and pictures." "This book will be of interest to both ancient and modern historians of Egypt, and will become an essential companion to Lane's Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians."--Jacket
