Book Description

Aug. 15 2000
A brilliantly produced volume on one of the most intriguing historical figures ever-oversized and lavishly illustrated with 8 pages of gatefolds, 400 color images, the highest quality paper, and a three-piece linen-bound cover!
 
Until Howard Carter finally discovered Tutankhamun's tomb, the magnificence of the young king's legacy, left behind more than 3,000 years ago, was merely legend. What Carter unearthed in 1922, after years of painstaking work, exceeded anyone's expectations--and created a worldwide sensation. Come along on Carter's groundbreaking archeological adventure, courtesy of the British Museum's longtime keeper of Egyptian antiquities and author of several books on the subject. From the first shovel that dug into Egyptian earth to the uncovering of Tut's body, you're there every step of the way, enlightened by knowledge of the life and background of the Boy Pharaoh, this incredible historical significance of his brief reign, and an overview of his world.
 
Renowned art photographer Araldo De Luca brings us virtually inside the tomb with over 400 pictures all taken especially for this book: from pendants, bangles, and collars to furniture, royal regalia and weapons, this is a dazzling display in both words and all-new photographs of the most breathtaking treasure trove in the history of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! March 25 2002
Format:Hardcover
I don't actually own this book, however, I spent no less than an hour and a half staring at the pages, wishing I had sixty dollars to spend on it. Now I'm glad I didn't have that money, considering I can buy the same book for twenty dollars less!
Anyways, this book is literally filled with beautiful photos, and information about each one. I am sure that if I had been given the opportunity to read it, page by page, I would have other wonderful comments to make. However, I only know the bare minimum about it, and I strongly suggest anyone who is truly interested in Ancient Egypt, and Tutankhamun, to buy this astounding book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous volume! Dec 11 2000
Format:Hardcover
This new volume is a refreshing addition to any collection on the subject of Tutankhamun. For those of us who have not been able to actually visit the Egyptian Museum and see the treasures of the king for ourselves, Tutankhamun, by T.G.H. James is essential. There have been many publications on the subject, and many fine photographs of the objects of the tomb reproduced. T.G.H. James has collected a totally new set of images, many of objects which are not published previously. The reproductions are superbly done, the accompanying text is refreshing and illuminating. If you have read everything you could find on the subject, and perused each object until the page begins to wear, this book is for you. I am totally delighted with this book!
