Egypt, Paperback / softback Book


This beautifully-designed pocket reference - more a compact encyclopedia than a dictionary - presents ancient Egypt in stunningly-produced photographs and concise textual descriptions of Egyptian art, culture, and government.

This is a must-have addition to the library of anyone interested in ancient Egypt, and a necessary companion for the traveler.
