Book Overview

Deliver me from the Watchers who bear slaughtering knives, and who have cruel fingers.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead is an ancient collection of spells, prayers and incantations designed to guide the departed through the perils of the underworld, ultimately ensuring eternal life. Written as part of funeral rites, these scrolls were often left in the sarcophagus of the deceased and now offer fascinating insight into Egyptian culture.

This beautifully illustrated edition contains images from the exquisite Papyrus of Ani, an ancient Egyptian scroll narrating the journey of Theban scribe Ani through the underworld. Its accompanying hieroglyphic text has been translated by acclaimed Egyptologist E.A Wallis Budge, and includes spells addressed to ferryman, gods and kings to aid Ani on his way to the afterlife.

   Quality of this edition is superb for the price.
Sirius is seeking an injunction to halt distribution of the book until May 5, 2019. Black and white cover and slipcase. I am not reviewing the content of the book, nor am I an Egyption Subject Matter Expert. I paid 20 dollars for this book, which I think is an absolute bargain for a book of this quality, McBride said. The pages are sewn without glue and are then cut to fit the mold. The cover is usually a very nice, shiny, silk cloth or a material similar to silk. The paper is thick and glossy with full color pictures on almost every page. It also comes with a slip case. Only in a large format would it be possible to release the book in such a way that the high quality color pictures could be examined more closely. But then, they would surely have to raise the price again.

   Type is very small.
The type is very small, making it difficult to measure. It's very hard to read without magnification glasses. Now I have to buy another book.

   The most beautiful book I've ever owned
This book is absolutely gorgeous, Kate writes. It comes in a sturdy box slip case to protect it and I didn't realize it when I ordered it, but the cover is made of a silky ribbon material- the lettering on the front is even in gold! The book is full of illustrations and goes into great detail to help the reader understand the images. The book is so interesting and the ancient text is so beautiful and poetic, Raymond said. This would make a great present for someone who loves ancient history, Tunick said.

   BUY!!!!!!! YOU WONT regret it!
Everything is beautiful, I must say. Soft to the touch, this book is a must-have for any aspiring writer. It's very much worth the money, Sir Richard said. Its a tad smaller than I expected. This is just a matter of time, said Mr. Ruleford. The weight of the beast is just too heavy. Overall, I'm pleased with the outcome of the survey.

   Great investment
Beautifully done. The read isn't easy, but it can be done. It's a good read, but I had to read it a few times to get used to it. That really helps, Mr. Rule told the judge.

   Beautiful book, best copy.
This book is so beautiful, Kate. It is, however, beautiful inside and out, thanks to the careful translation by an Egyptologist. The book is the best of the lot, Simon says. So happy that it was mine!

   Not really happy.
In order to truly understand the hieroglyphics you would have to decipher or translate the entire book on your own.

   Praise to Orisis - recommend Book of the Dead
Thanks for the book. Imagine, one said, the Roman Catholic priest standing in front of the coffin performing the funeral rites. What's different about this time period is that we're dealing with computers? Added bonus: The illustrations by Pauley-Doherty. It's nice to see where the papyrus is written. If you enjoy ancient Egypt, this is a must-have.

   Beautiful looking book.
I never thought I'd love a book because of how it looks but man is this thing beautiful, Beckham said. It has a nice sheen to the material, making it suitable for use in furniture. The binding is ok but I worry it might come undone, Hollingworth said. The pages are in pristine condition. It's great smelling, and don't judge me, but it really works.
