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

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 210 libraries worldwide
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
