Egypt of the Pharaohs: An Introduction by A. H. Gardiner

The mysteries of Ancient Egypt, the wonderland of the Pharaohs, have always held the world in awe.

Sir Alan Gardiner presents background on the Egyptian language, writing, land, its neighbors, and its resources, with a special section devoted to the Egyptian method of determining chronological dates. He then follows with a concise history of Egypt from the time of the Old Kingdom, through the Ramesside period, up to the last days of Egyptian independence around 323 B.C. Authoritative and meticulously researched, "Egypt of the Pharaohs" is an enticing introduction to the study of this ancient civilization.

"A magnificent book."--New Statesman


"Outstanding, both for the meticulous scholarship for which the author is renowned among Egyptologists and for the humanity and understanding with which he approaches this subject."--Times Literary Supplement


"Presented with an authority which cannot be surpassed...with notable frankness, and with a detached enthusiasm...which reflect the long life of a scholar whose vocation has at the same time been his hobby."--The Spectator


"A 'must' for students of Egyptian history."--John W. Betlyon, University of North Florida
