Manual of Egyptian Archaeology
by G. Maspero
Publisher: Putnam 1914
Number of pages: 420
Notwithstanding the fact that Egyptology is now recognised as a science, an exact and communicable knowledge of whose existence and scope it behoves all modern culture to take cognisance, this work of M. Maspero still remains the Handbook of Egyptian Archaeology. For those who know little, this book will open a fresh and fascinating field of study, while for skilled archaeologist these pages contain not only new facts, but new views and new interpretations.
