Product Description

From Library Journal

In 1906, Breasted, America's first noted Egyptologist, published this series in which he presents a history of the golden age of Egypt gleaned from its records, many of which he was the first scholar to be allowed to study. This edition, the first in paperback, offers a new introduction by historian Peter A. Piccione, who places Breasted's work in a modern context. A solid series for academic libraries and priced so that public libraries also can afford them.

By Francesca Jourdan on Sept. 15 2001
Format: Paperback
These volumes, written by a distinguished American Egyptologist, were first published in 1906 and 1907. In his introduction to this re-edition, Egyptologist Peter Piccione provides a short biography of the author as well as a historical account of the 5 tomes. Volume 1 discusses the First through the Seventeenth Dynasties; Volume 2, the Eighteenth Dynasty; Volume 3, the Nineteenth Dynasty; and Volume 4, the Twentieth through Twenty-Sixth Dynasties. Volume 5 contains supplementary bibliographies and indices for the previous volumes; Piccione has added a more recent bibliography that proves to be quite useful. Each book offers a description of texts along with comments on historicity and significance, before continuing onto easy-to-understand translations. Many of the texts included are never-before-seen passages, while others are quite popular: the Palermo Stone, Letter of Pepi II, Tale of Sinuhe, Tomb of Rekhmire, Capture of Kadesh, Papyrus Harris, Adoption Stela of Nitocris, and so on. This is the most complete, easy-to-consult translation of Egyptian historical texts ever available in the field of Egyptology. A highly recommended resource for students and scholars.

Dated but where else can you get all of these texts? Feb. 27 2012
By Bryan Kerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought these volumes some time back for a study I did on temple donations in ancient Egypt. My skill with Egyptian in the original is lacking, I took one university course in Middle Egyptian in 2007, so these books were invaluable for research. The translations are pretty old but were one to attempt to collect more recent translations of every single text in this mammoth work, you would spend hundreds of hours locating them, and have to find room to store the collection you would certainly amass. The binding is great, as is the paper quality. Great deal.
