Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spanning the early dynastic period to modern times, treasury of Egyptian folklore encompasses 36 beguiling stories. First part contains tales originally written in hieratic characters; second part documents Christian influence; third part recounts stories of Muslims who succeeded Copts. 40 black-and-white illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

Perhaps still the most renowned British Egyptologist, and as stodgy as ever, Budge (1857-1934) translates and summarizes a sample of fiction and historical and religious romances of the Egyptians from the early dynastic period to his own time. The original was published by Thornton Butterworth, London as Egyptian Tales and Romances.
