Don’t run to Wikipedia to decipher your Egyptian hieroglyphics. This book, in a very methodical way, takes some of the most important of these symbol strings and deciphers them into both Egyptian and English texts / translation.

 

Truly fascinating and a great conversation piece for your knowledge library.

 

Very good condition in original publisher’s printed cloth. Light wear to upper spine. Volume number hand-lettered in ink on spine. Inside front cover is the signature of the first owner who purchased the book in September 1919. 268 pages with illustrations.

 

Contents: The Doctrine of Offerings; The Liturgy of Funerary Offerings Described; Description of the Offerings; The Liturgy Described. 107 illustrations.

 

I loved perusing this book!
