Sir Alan Gardiner's edition of the papyrus with the Royal Canon of Turin, which has been out of print for some years, is now once more available. The reprint presents this indispensable tool for every student of Egyptian chronology and historian of ancient Egypt in a more compact and handy size, but maintains the clarity and the two-colour printing of the original edition. The volume, originally published by the Griffith Institute in commemoration of Sir Alan's 80th birthday, contains a complete hieroglyphic transcription of the now sadly fragmentary document, the verso of which is of inestimable value for the reconstruction of the relative and absolute chronology of the first seventeen Egyptian royal dynasties. The volume also contains the transcription of the Ramesside tax-lists on the recto of the papyrus. In addition to notes on palaeography and unplaced fragments there is a concordance of all 164 fragments.Biografía del autor:
