The Egyptian Book of The Dead

by Dr. Faulkner Raymond, Ogden Goelet, Eva Von Dassow
Published by Chronicle Books
Paperback - 174 pages

 

Michael G. Smith

. This book is an outstanding translation and presentation of the books that make up the Papyrus of Ani. Faulkner is far superior to Budge, and this book proves it out. In addition to the beautiful pictures and fine translations, the commentaries in the back, along with the explanations of the vignettes contained in the papyrus are well worth the money. A must for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt and their culture.

Paperback - 188 pages

 

Francesca Jourdan

. "Egyptologists tend to focus mostly on the Book of the Dead, ignoring lesser known texts to a large degree.

Included here are the Pyramid Texts, the Coffin Texts, the Book of the Dead, the Books of Breathing, the Amduat, the Spell of the Twelve Caves, the Book of Gates, the Book of Caverns, the Book of the Earth, the Book of Nut, the Book of the Day, the Book of the Night, the Litany of Re, the Book of the Heavenly Cow and the Book of Traversing Eternity. The glossary and extensive bibliography are useful. Well translated by David Lorton, illustrated in black and white, this is a recommended book for all searching for details on important Egyptian texts. "
