At last, an English dictionary of Egyptian hieroglyphics. This monumental work - long out of print, a very hard and rare book to find - was prepared by one of the foremost Egyptologists of the century. It contains nearly 28,000 words or terms that occur in hieroglyphics texts dating from the Third Dynasty through the Roman period, roughly from 3,000 B.C. to 600 A.D. It is the only complete English dictionary available anywhere. For students, teachers, collectors, libraries, museums or anyone seriously interested in deciphering ancient Egyptian writings, magical formulas or inscriptions for themselves, this is a must!
