The Eighteenth Dynasty of ancient Egypt (c. 1550-1292 BC) is the best known of all, including as it does the time of Tutankhamun, the four Thutmosis pharaohs, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten and his queen, Nefertiti. This volume, prepared originally by University of Chicago Professor James Henry Breasted, is a compilation of all the existent Egyptian records, translated from the hieroglyphics into English. An extremely rare work, long out of print because of its politically incorrect interpretation of racial ancient Egyptian history, but a treasure trove for students of race in history. James Henry Breasted (1865-1935) obtained his PhD at the University of Berlin and became director of the Haskell Oriental Museum at the University of Chicago, where he held the first chair in Egyptology and Oriental History in the United States. In 1919 he became the founder of the Oriental Institute at that university. Ancient Records of Egypt, Volumes 1 to 5, is his most magnificent achievement. They are most complete account of all existing original Egyptian records, translated from the original hieroglyphics into English. Breasted undertook this incredible task by traveling to all the historical sites in Egypt and the world's museums. There, he meticulously copied and translated all surviving Egyptian records, be they from stone, papyrus or leather artifacts. In this manner, Breasted provided an unparalleled insight in to the historical, cultural, racial and religious events of ancient Egyptian history, directly from the original sources. Cover: Statue of Nefertiti, Neues Museum, Berlin.
