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.
