A cornucopia of history, culture and imagination, Elizabeth Peters's lively and informative compendium is a celebration of every aspect of mystery fiction's favourite female sleuth. Filled with contributions from leading historians, archaeologists and Egyptologists, and illustrated with nearly 600 black-and-white photographs and drawings, Amelia Peabody's Egypt encompasses the glory of Egypt and the nuances of life there in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Included are a previously unpublished journal entry by her distinguished Egyptologist husband, Emerson, essays that illuminate the background to the novels, never before revealed, and photographs - published for the first time - of family members, cats and characters. Here too are insights into Victorian attitudes towards servants, early feminism, fashion, scientific breakthroughs in the field of archaeology and more, all of which bring the world of Amelia Peabody to life.
This beautifully designed, richly detailed companion to the beloved best-selling mystery-fiction series is sure to become a keepsake treasure for all Egyptology aficionados and every Elizabeth Peters's fan.
