A HISTORY OF ANCIENT EGYPT

The work here offered to the public, conceived and commenced
in the year 1876, was designed to supply what seemed
a crying need of English literature—viz., an account of
Ancient Egypt, combining its antiquities with its history, addressed
partly to the eye, and presenting to the reader, within
a reasonable compass, the chief points of Egyptian life—manners,
customs, art, science, literature, and religion.
