Seen in all their glory of modern presentation it is easy to forget that the treasures of Tutankhamun were only discovered in 1922 after the persistent and painstaking search of one man. Howard Carter, a young man of seventeen, began his 30 year adventure of excavation and discovery as a draughtsman under the famous archaeologist Flinders Petrie in Amarna. Gradually falling under the spell of the science he discovered an unaccounted for gap of ten years after the rule of Akhenaten and became convinced there must have been another pharaoh of whom nothing was known. Philipp Vandenberg has written a fascinating book on this great story of excavation an exploration into the past which yielded such unimaginable treasures. N° de ref. de la librería 10479

Descripción de la librería: We specialise in travel, adventure and exploration books published between about 1900 and 1960, loosely referred to as post-imperialist travel writing. Although most books are the first-hand experiences of their authors, we have included books of general interest about a particular area or incident and autobiographies and biographies by and of famous travellers or adventurers. You will also find some books we consider of particular merit outside our somewhat arbitrary date range. Mark Culme-Seymour Proprietor
