Echoes of Egypt : Conjuring the Land of the Pharaohs Paperback / softback
Part of the Yale Egyptological Studies series
Echoes of Egypt is a catalogue accompanying an exhibit at Yale's Peabody Museum of Natural History.
Edited by Colleen Manassa, the catalogue also includes entries by international experts.
Documenting two thousand years of the reception of ancient Egypt throughout the world, Echoes of Egypt transcends the typical account on Nineteenth and Twentieth Century 'Egyptomania'.
The first chapter includes a chronological overview of the exhibit, ranging from ancient Meroe, Greece and Rome, and medieval Arab-Islamic fascination with hieroglyphs to Piranesi's interior designs and the impact of Napoleon's invasion.
Additional chapters focus on the meaning and changing uses of hieroglyphs, 'mummy mania' and Egyptosophy.
Full colour images complement the text.
