Focusing on the monuments on either side of the Nile, the author describes Egyptians, their writing, religion and gods, plus historic locales and objects: Alexandria, Cairo, the Rosetta Stone, the pyramids, the Sphinx; the statue of Rameses II, the temples at Luxor and Karnak, major sites where royal mummies were discovered, and more.

Book News Annotation:

Originally published in 1890 by the well-known London travel agency of Thomas Cook and Son, this tour guide by Egyptologist E. A. Wallis Budge was written to provide visitors to Egypt with reliable information about Egyptian civilization from BC 4400 to BC 450. Emphasis is placed on the monuments on either side of the Nile between Cairo and Wadi Halfah.
