The art of ancient Egypt by Gay Robins( Book )

40 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the awesome grandeur of the great pyramids to the delicacy of a face etched on an amulet, the power of the art of ancient Egypt persists to this day. This beautifully illustrated book conducts us through the splendors of this world, great and small, and into the mysteries of its fascination in its day as well as in our own. What did art, and the architecture that housed it, mean to the ancient Egyptians? Why did they invest such vast wealth and effort in its production? These are the puzzles Gay Robins explores as she examines the objects of Egyptian art - the tombs and wall paintings, the sculpture and stelae, the coffins, funerary papyri, and amulets - from its first flowering in the Early Dynastic period to its final resurgence in the time of the Ptolemies

The Rhind mathematical papyrus : an ancient Egyptian text by Gay Robins( Book )

35 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rhind Mathematical Papyrus is the oldest textbook of its sort in the world. Found in Thebes in the 1850s it dates back in its origins to the age of the great pyramid-builders. The ancient Egyptians were superb arithmeticians, with enough understanding of geometry and trigonometry to make their architectural triumphs possible. Their work was later to inspire the more theoretical achievements of the Greeks. From the papyrus we learn how young pupils were subjected to a rigorous training in the manipulation of numbers that enabled the fully-fledged scribe to control not only the design and construction of huge monuments but also the more mundane activities of everyday life. Some of their methods are similar to those of today; others have been superseded but nevertheless retain a fascination of their own. Scholars still argue as to how the Egyptians obtained certain of their results: the authors provide a number of new interpretations and set out controversial matters so that the reader can decide for himself. -- from back cover
