The first paperback edition of the monumental assemblage by the father of American Egyptology of all the historical "documents" of ancient Egypt: all the records of kings and queens, military conquests, diplomacy, etc. carved in stone or inscribed on papyrus or leather.
"In 1906, Breasted, America's first noted Egyptologist, published this series in which he presents a history of the golden age of Egypt gleaned from its records, many of which he was the first scholar to be allowed to study. This edition, the first in paperback, offers a new introduction by historian Peter A. Piccione, who places Breasted's work in a modern context. A solid series for academic libraries and priced so that public libraries also can afford them." -- "Classic Returns," Library Journal "The republication of this seminal work after nearly a century, by the University of Illinois, is as welcome as it is unexpected." -- Josef Wegner, Odyssey
