Rare indeed is the book that may legitimately claim to match the visual experience of a journey along the Nile. Egypt: Splendours of an Ancient Civilization does just this, presenting in magnificent colour some of the finest photographs ever taken of Egypt's monuments and fabulous treasures. Each location visited, from Tanis to Abu Simbel, is illustrated by a site plan and photographs not only of the principal structures but also of objects from the site, allowing these extraordinary works of art to be appreciated in their original setting. Specially commissioned and highly informative cross-sectional diagrams, including reconstructions of the tombs of Tutankhamum, Sethos I and Queen Nefertari, a double fold-out map of the course of the Nile and an illustrated glossary complete this panoramic study of Egyptian civilization

Egypt Lost and Found chronicles how the ancient Egyptian culture has been unearthed and translated by archeologists over the past three centuries.

Featured also are maps, statues, portraits of the explorers and of the people of Egypt, as well as scenes highlighting the magnificence of the landscapes, temples, and pyramids. --From publisher's description

Nefertari e la valle delle regine by Alberto Siliotti( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 58 libraries worldwide
"Das Tal der Königinnen", in dem sich auch die hier ausführlich dokumentierte Grabanlage Nefertaris, der "Großen Königlichen Gemahlin" Ramses' II. befindet, lag stets im Schatten vom "Tal der Könige" (BA 7/97) - vgl. auch Jacq (BA 2/99) und Weeks "Ramses II" (BA 6/99) - und wurde seit 1907 durch italienische Archäologen gründlich erforscht. Der großformatige Band stellt anschaulich die Grabungsergebnisse dar, unterstützt durch reichhaltiges und informatives Bildmaterial, das in Farbtafeln, Grundrissen und Skizzen einen plastischen Eindruck der trotz Erosion und Plünderungen spürbaren Pracht einzelner Gräber vermittelt und die religiösen Grundlagen des Totenkultes deutlich macht. Daneben werden architektonische Fragen und Probleme bei der Restaurierung des Nefertarigrabes erörtert. Als "Gegengewicht" zu den oben genannten Titeln unbedingt empfehlenswert.
