Antique Book: Egyptian Mummies. Hardcover. Smith & Dawson. Woodcuts. 1924. Dustcover. Good Condition.
Fascinating!! Dial Press Inc. Woodcuts by A. Horace Gerrar and K. Leigh-Pemberton plus other illustrators. 189 pages are clean. Vertical page edges remain untrimmed (this is cool).
Covers are sturdy but I had them examined, reinforced with archival materials to a very good condition. Plus, I also had the dustcover improved to a useable condition.
In additional to a fascinating book that speaks to the mummification in ancient Egypt, this book provides the most comprehensive account available of the technical processes and materials employed by the ancient Egyptian embalmers together with a historical analysis of their modification throughout the dynastic period. Whew…. yes comprehensive.
Copies of this condition are not readily available and therefore are very rare.
Add this book to your library and enjoy some really interesting reading. Know that you secured this book at 1/2 of what other marginal-condition editions are selling for via auction!
For the Serious Collector of rare and interesting books.
