Egyptian Pyramids: An Analysis of a Great Mystery
by Everett W. Fish
Publisher: E. W. Fish 1880
Number of pages: 186

In shape Egypt is like a lily with a crooked stem. A broad blossom terminates it at its upper end; a button of a bud projects from the stalk a little below the blossom. The broad blossom is the Delta, extending a direct distance of 180 miles.
