A History Of The Ancient Egyptians : The Historical Series for Bible Students: Volume V

by James Henry Breasted

Condition: Good/None

This book is in good condition. The front, back and spine of the cover boards have some wear, as well as the edges. The corners are also bumped. The previous owners name is written on the front end page and the ink has bled onto the inside of the front cover board. There is a mark on the first page that has bled through to the first title page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. The binding is loose, but the pages are intact and solid.

"As works on the early Orient multiply, it becomes more and more easy to produce such books at second and third hand, which are thus separated by a long remove from the original monuments forming our primary sources of knowledge. As the use of this volume is in a measure conditioned by the method which produced it, may the author state that it is based directly and immediately upon the monuments, and in most cases upon the original monuments, rather than upon any published edition of the same? For this purpose the historical monuments still standing in Egypt, or installed in the museums of Europe (the latter in toto), were copied or collated by the author anew ad hoc and rendered into English (see infra, p. 445, B. Translations, BAR). Upon this complete version the present volume rests. Those students who desire to consult the sources upon which any given fact is based, are referred to this English corpus. A full bibliography of each original document, if desired, will also be found there, and hence no references to such technical bibliography will be found herein, thus freeing the reader from a massof workshop debris, to which, however, he can easily refer, if he desires it." - Preface, A History Of The Ancient Egyptians
