Description:
Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1996 192 pages with plates (174 in color), map, bibliography, and index. Quarto (112 1/4" x 9") issued in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. 1st edition. In ancient Egypt the strategy to achieve life after death relied on hieroglyphs, which united art and writing to help fulfill this ambition. this lavishly illustrated work tells the history of the texts that, through 3,000 years, were designed to ensure survival after death. Stephen Quirke sets out the history of the texts designed to guarantee life beyond death, from the Pyramid Texts for kings and queens, c2400 BC, to the Book of the Dead used by king and subject alike after 1600 BC. The literature that flourished for millennia met its end under the combined pressures of Greek-speaking government, Roman occupation and conversion to Christianity. Although Books of the Dead and other funerary manuscripts form the great bulk of surviving Pharaonic texts, no up-to-date survey of this material has been… Read more

Description:
British Museum Press. Very Good/Very Good. 1996. Hard Cover. 0714109959 Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. 192 pages. Dimensions: 28.6 x 22.4 x 2.2 cm. Egyptian hieroglyphs unite art and writing in a conscious plan to attain eternal life. The success of that plan can be read in the 3000-year lifespan of Pharaonic tradition, and can only be understood through its religious foundation. In this new and comprehensive study, Stephen Quirke sets out the history of the texts designed to guarantee life beyond death, from the Pyramid Texts for kings and queens, c.2400 BC, to the Book of the Dead used by king and subject alike after 1600 BC. The literature that flourished for millennia met its end under the combined pressures of Greek-speaking government, Roman occupation, and conversion to Christianity.

Description:
British Museum Press/BCA, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. A bright, clean, and tight copy. Unmarked pages, light creasing to top edge of jacket, very small nick to front side edge. The book written by Dr. Quirke (Egyptian Curator at the British Museum, London) and illustrated by Mr. Forman (Photographer) is most recommendable. With a clear and concise style, the former introduces to us the historical evolution of the traditional religious literature of Ancient Egypt, i.e., the Pyramid Texts, Coffin Texts and Book of the Dead, not only focusing on the "historical" process but also in the evolution of the contents and the mental horizon expressed therein. There are excellent editions and translations of all of the aforesaid "Egyptian books", but very few in which the connection between the three of them can be traced so neatly as in this one. The superb color plates of the second co-author are an actual mine of visual information on monuments for… Read more
