I have here a VERY SCARSE 2 volume set entitled THE EGYPTIAN SUDAN ITS HISTORY AND MONUMENTS by E A Wallis Budge. It is a first edition published in 1907.
VOL I : by Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. - xxviii - 652pp
VOL II: by J. B. Lippincott Company, Philadelpha - 618pp
Illustrated with over 70 black and white plates, mostly from photographs but also folding reproductions from Egyptian relics, plans and maps, and with hundreds of illustrations throughout the text.
Budge was Keeper of the Egyptian and Assyrian Antiques in the British Museum. He is most well known for his extensive studies of the Rosetta Stone and his translation of the "The Book of the Dead" from the Papyrus of Ani in the British Museum. Budge traveled extensively throughout Egypt and the Sudan. This work details extensively the ancient monuments and ongoing excavations of the area but also covers the more recent history of the region, from the Roman and early Mohammedan periods up to the contemporaneous British control of the Sudan.
Dark maroon cloth hardboards with gilt illustrations of palm trees and a local tribesman and gilt lettering to the front board. Gilt lettering to the spine. Minor rubbing to edges, hinges are cracked but otherwise in very good condition with no pages loose or missing. Pages are clean throughout.
