The Treasury of Ancient Egypt
by Arthur E. P. B. Weigall
Publisher: W. Blackwood and sons 1911
Number of pages: 400

At Luxor, Weigall threw himself with immense energy into aspects of the job that in his view had been somewhat neglected-the protection and conservation of monuments that were steadily vanishing into the ravenous markets of Europe and North America.
