Review:

A godsend ... I am sure that Champollion would approve --Minerva

A refreshingly new approach to the subject ... beautifully produced and illustrated in a manner that should make it appealing not only to the 'complete beginner' at whom it is aimed, but also to those with a basic knowledge wishing to refresh their skills. I recommend it highly --Ancient Egypt Magazine

Bill Manley writes well. His prose is simple, clear and easy to digest ... This is by far the best of the beginner's guides that I have encountered --Egyptological Magazine

Ever wanted to learn about Egyptian hieroglyphs? Here's the book for you! --The Guardian

Grand Eagle Retail
(Wilmington, DE, U.S.A.)

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. This is the first guide to reading hieroglyphs that begins with Egyptian monuments themselves. Assuming no knowledge on the part of the reader, it shows how to interpret the information on the inscriptions in a step-by-step journey through the script and language of ancient Egypt. We enter the world of the ancient Egyptians and explore their views on life and death, Egypt and the outside world, humanity and the divine. The book draws on texts found on some thirty artifacts ranging from coffins to stelae to obelisks found in museums in Egypt, America, and Europe, and selected across two thousand years. The texts are then explained clearly, and are supported by full translations, photographs, and line drawings. Presents a fresh approach to reading ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, this introduction assumes no previous knowledge of grammar or ancient languages, but guides readers through the inscriptions, from simple to more complex, supported by full explanations and translations. It explains the mysteries of hieroglyphs without jargon or technical terms. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
