Life in ancient Egypt by Adolf Erman( Book )

41 editions published between 1894 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was it like to live in the ancient land watered by the Nile, thousands of years before Christ was born? How did a man earn his living, what did he wear, where did he go in his leisure time? What was the relationship between an ordinary Egyptian and his government, his wife, his children? Was life for him grim or optimistic, difficult or easy, reverent or worldly? Did his people travel, explore, conquer? Were they very much different from those of the other great civilizations of antiquity, the Greek and the Roman? What was the nature of their science, art, magic, religion? If the past has lessons for the present, what can we deduce from ancient Egyptian life that is of value to us today?
Ancient Egyptian literature : [a collection of poems, narratives, and manuals of instruction from the third and second millennia BC] by Adolf Erman( )

"This book is a collection of some of the earliest extant literature from the great Ancient Egyptian civilization. Much of the material contained in this work - poems, narratives, songs and prayers - was translated here and made accessible to lovers of antiquity for the first time. Covering a range of topics including schools, religion and love, these texts provide the reader with a deeper understanding of ancient life along the Nile." --Book Jacket

The ancient Egyptians : a sourcebook of their writings. by Adolf Erman( Book )

19 editions published between 1966 and 1978 in English and German and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the older masterpieces on ancient Egypt, Erman's present work has retained its intrinsic value as a monument of erudition, perhaps manily on account of the immutable loveliness and naivete of Egyptian belles-lettres themselves. This is still an unsurpassed selection of poems, narratives and instructional manuals of wit and wisdom from the most ancient men of letters."--Aziz S. Atiya
