Egyptology: Search for the Tomb of Osiris

Please browse our listings to see if any of the wonderful works might interest you. Condition: As New. No dust jacket issued. About this book: Discover the wonders of ancient Egypt through a fascinating journal from a lost expedition — a treasure trove of fact and fantasy featuring a novelty element on every spread.Who can resist the allure of ancient Egypt — and the thrill of uncovering mysteries that have lain hidden for thousands of years? Not the feisty Miss Emily Sands, who in 1926, four years after the discovery of King Tut's tomb, led an expedition up the Nile in search of the tomb of the god Osiris. Alas, Miss Sands and crew soon vanished into the desert, never to be seen again. But luckily, her keen observations live on in the form of a lovingly kept journal, full of drawings, photographs, booklets, foldout maps, postcards, and many other intriguing samples. Here are just a few of EGYPTOLOGY's special features:— an extravagantly gilded cover, featuring a raised Horus hawk pendant with three encrusted gems — a playable game of Senet — ancient Egyptian checkers — including board, pieces, original-style dice, and rules — a souvenir booklet showing how to read simple hieroglyphs — a scrap of textured "mummy cloth" — a facsimile of the gilded mummy mask of King Tut — a gilded eye-of-Horus amulet with a "jewel" at the endRich with information about life in ancient Egypt and peppered with Miss Sands's lively narration, EGYPTOLOGY concludes with a letter from the former Keeper of Antiquities at the British Museum, explaining which parts of this unique tale may be accepted as fact, which are guided by legend, and which reflect the author's delightful sense of fancy.

Dick, R.D. #2, New Wilmington, Pa.16142", no other apparent markings within this novel. No dust jacket. About this Novel: This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. THIS BOOK IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED TO MY WIFE: PREFACE In sending this, my fourth venture, out upon the uncertain waters of public opinion, I shall say but few words of preface. In the past, I have received considerable well-deserved criticism from the gentlemen of the caustic pen, but so far from having any hard feeling toward them, I have rather wondered that they found so much to say that was favorable. How they will judge this simple October story (if they think it worthwhile to judge it at all) I leave to the future and turn to those for whom the book was really written. In fancy, I see them around the glowing hearth in quiet homes, such as I have tried to describe in the following pages, and hope that this new-comer will be welcomed for the sake of those that preceded it. Possibly it may make friends of its own. From widely separated parts of the country, and from almost every class, I have received many and cordial assurances that my former books were sources not only of pleasure but also of help and benefit, and I am deeply grateful for the privilege of unobtrusively entering so many households, and saying words on that subject which is inseparable from happiness in both worlds. I think the purpose of the book will become apparent to the reader. The incidents and characters are mainly imaginary. Observation has shown me that there are many in the world, like my hero, whose condition can be illustrated by the following lines: Were some great ship all out of stores, When half-way o'er the sea, Fit emblem of too many lives, Such vessel doomed would be. Must there not be something fatally wrong in that scheme of life which finds an heir of eternity weary, listless, discouraged, while yet in the dawning of existence? It is not in perishing things merely, to give back the lost zest. But a glad zest and hopefulness might be inspired even in the most jaded and ennui-cursed, were there in our homes such simple, truthful natures as that of my heroine; and in the sphere of quiet homes-not elsewhere--I believe that woman can best rule and save the world. Highland Falls, N.Y., September 1874

Ceram visualized archeology as a wonderful combination of high adventure, romance, history, and scholarship, and this book, a chronicle of man's search for his past, reads like a dramatic narrative. We travel with Heinrich Schliemann as, defying the ridicule of the learned world, he actually unearths the remains of the ancient city of Troy. We share the excitement of Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter as they first glimpse the riches of Tutankhamen's tomb, of George Smith when he found the ancient clay tablets that contained the records of the Biblical Flood. We rediscover the ruined splendors of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the wonders of the ancient wold; of Chichen Itza, the abandoned pyramids of the Maya: and the legendary Labyrinth of tile Minotaur in Crete. Here is much of the history of civilization and the stories of the men who rediscovered it.
