Descripción:

Royal quarto (315 × 245 mm). Original sand buckram, title gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. Spine gently rolled. A very good copy in the slightly rubbed jacket with a few minor edge-splits and chips. Coloured frontispiece and 61 black and white plates, largely from photographs, folding map at the rear. First edition of this handsomely produced survey of sites found on the west bank of the Nile from Qena to Aswan, Jebel Uweinat, and the road leading from the Nile Valley to Dakhla through the Kharga Oasis; volume I relates to the previous season's expedition, to the Eastern desert. "The recognition of Egyptian rock art as something that could be closely linked to the archaeologically known cultures of the Nile Valley served as a strong impetus for further research. Several surveys and recording campaigns were organized in Upper Egypt and Nubia during during the last decade of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century. The most celebrated accomplishment in the study of rock art is undoubtedly the work of German ethographer Hans Alexander Winkler in the Eastern and Western deserts of Egypt. Winkler's magnum opus, Rock-Drawings of Southern Egypt, is still one of the most important collections of rock-art material from Egypt" (UCLA Encyclopaedia of Egyptology). For the last month of the expedition, Winkler joined the team of O. H. Myers and Major R. A. Bagnold, who were exploring the Gilf el-Kebir and the 'Uweinat, and on returning to Germany was conscripted to the Wehrmacht and killed in action in 1945. N° de ref. de la librería
