This was Howard Carter's initial description of the newly unearthed tomb of Tutenkhamen, and having read "The Complete Tutenkhamen" I'm inclined to make the same observation. For the first few hours the text of this book will be impossible to read, because the pictures are so arresting. My personal favorite is something that looks like a painted statute but, we are told, was a domestic a clothes-horse: if so, it's possibly the most beautiful mannequin ever designed. Virtually the entire inventory of Tut's tomb is dissected, with separate chapters devoted to each antechamber. We are treated, as well, to an account of Howard Carter's (and Lord Caernavon's) legendary pursuits, and explosion of the "Tut's Curse" canard. A great mix of good history and real eye candy.
