Profusely illustrated throughout the three volumes with 72 plates (8 in color), many are foldouts, plus 643 text illustrations (woodcuts), most of which are drawn by Wilkinson. A bit of rubbing to boards of all three volumes, one tear along crease of one of the large foldout plates (still holding), corners sharp and bindings very solid. A VERY GOOD SET.

This is Wilkinson’s classic work on every aspect of the Ancient Egyptians. This revised and corrected edition was published after Wilkinson passed away and a number of manuscripts were provided to Samuel Birch by Wilkinson’s wife. A large amount of new information has been added to this edition and some material has been updated based on newer research. Much more on the Egyptian Gods and the religious practices of Egypt have been included also. The amount of information provided in these volumes is simply staggering. Wilkinson’s drawings provide a visual feast to go with the accompanying text throughout.
