The Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Book of Going Forth by Day


This 20th anniversary edition of The Egyptian Book of the Dead, a seminal work and a perennial favorite, features a newly designed cover and 16 pages of all-new content that analyzes the progress in modern Egyptology. Inside the book, the legendary 3,500-year-old Papyrus of Ani—the most beautiful of the ornately illustrated Egyptian funerary scrolls ever discovered—is restored in its original sequences of text and artwork. Four exquisitely illustrated gatefold spreads and an acclaimed translation by a noted Egyptologist showcase the Papyrus's elaborately bordered images.
