An extremely rare and spectacular three-volume set. Often called the “Father of British Egyptology,” Wilkinson was the first British Egyptologist to properly value the interpretation of Egyptian texts. He spent a total of twelve years in Egypt and carried out extensive excavations at Karnak. His sketches are rendered with an accuracy and consistency that make them valuable evidence for monuments that were either damaged or destroyed afterwards. Drawing upon his work in the tombs at Gurna, Wilkinson was able to present a poignant picture of daily life in ancient Egypt that instantly caught the popular imagination. One of the most influential works in English on Egypt, and one of the principle vehicles of Egyptology in the 19th century. N° de ref. de la librería
