325pp. Profusely illustrated. Some minor rubbing to spine ends but o/w an about fine copy. Amelia Edwards [1831-1892] prolific novelist, poet and travel writer. Her earliest 'travel' book was published in 1862 and was a children's picture book of Belgium. Edwards soon travelled further afield, journeying to the Dolomite mountains. The following year she travelled to Egypt and discovered what was to be the love of her life. Travelling by dahabiah (sailing boat peculiar to the Nile) and armed with a sketch-book she carefully recorded all she saw; temples, graves and monuments. Her book "A Thousand Miles Up the Nile" provided the first general archaeological survey of Egypts ruins. It earned her the admiration of the leading archaeologists of the day. The above work contains "the substance of a course of lectures on ancient Egyptian subjects recently delivered in the United States of America." Chapters include; "The Explorers in Egypt," "Buried Cities of Ancient Egypt," "Portrait Painting in Egypt," "Origin of Portrait Sculpture and the History of Ka," "Literature and Religion of Ancient Egypt," "Hieroglyphic Writings of teh Ancient Egyptians," and "Queen Hatsu, and Her Expedition to the Land of Punt."
