The Tomb of Tutankhamen: Volume II

£80.00

Product description

Moderate shelf ware as a result of the book's age. There is staining to the outsides of the pages with specks overflowing onto some of the pages themselves, possibly as a result of previous damp damage. A white ink identification number is present at the bottom of the book's binding, and there is an ink stamp and writing on one of the inner pages, both are the result of previous ownership by a library. There is also an ink inscription on the inside of the front cover.

This book presents the second volume of Howard Carter's findings from his exploration of the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1923. In the book's introduction Carter remarks on the nature of Egyptian art and the controversy that once surrounded its interpretation. Carter's recounting of his most famous discovery is accompanied by astonishing photographs by Harry Burton, which provide a fascinating insight into what was found inside the tomb upon its discovery, as well as highlights of artefacts that Carter found to be of particular interest.

The book beautifully presents Carter's findings, including a wonderful gold leaf scarab beetle hieroglyph on the front cover, and printed decorative hieroglyphs on the inside of both covers.
