Number of pages: 400

Description:
This volume contains twelve chapters written at various times and in various places each dealing with some subject drawn from the great treasury of Ancient Egypt. Sir Arthur Weigall (1880-1934) was an English Egyptologist, journalist and author. A youthful fascination with genealogy led him to the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and so into Egyptology. At Luxor, Weigall threw himself with immense energy into aspects of the job that in his view had been somewhat neglected-the protection and conservation of monuments that were steadily vanishing into the ravenous markets of Europe and North America.
