By G. Maspero, Profs. Rappoport, King and Hall. Translated by M.L. McClure. Undated, circa 1905. Published by the Grolier Society, London. 9” x 6” cloth hardcover with spine labels.

Description: A sprawling history and examination of ancient Egypt by Professor George Maspero, and brought up to the 19th century by Profs. Rappoport, King and Hall. Thirteen heavily illustrated volumes embellished with numerous color plates and black and white illustrations. This is the complete thirteen volume set. Volume One has the personal calling card of the author and his wife, “Mr. & Mme. Maspero,” pasted on the inside cover. Was this set originally part of the author’s personal library. I do not know. Regardless, the presence of the author’s calling card begs the question. THE HISTORY OF EGYPT is an essential addition to any Egyptian collection and a vital research tool for serious Egyptologists. But why take my word for it? Below you will find summaries of the various chapters in these volumes. Further down the page, a generous sampling of the illustrated material, both color and black and white. I hope you will take a moment to have a look.
