The royal tombs of Egypt : the art of Thebes revealed by Zahi A Hawass( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The royal tombs, tunneled deep into the Theban cliffs, represented both the gates to the Netherworld and the womb of the Great Goddess. Many of them contain outstanding wall paintings of the king with gods and goddesses, as well as papyri, mummies, decorated coffins and other artifacts. This is the first book to reproduce these murals in full, and to explore the meanings of the esoteric and arcane Netherworld Books that decorated the royal tombs. The images are accompanied by in-depth analyses of the most deeply held beliefs of the ancient kings and queens who lay there, beliefs that provided the impetus of the building, decoration and equipping of these magnificent tombs."--Jacket

Eminent Egyptologist Hawass is Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities and in this role has taken on important changes to the Egyptian Museum, Cairo; in 2002, he organized a large centennial celebration for this important museum. Here he describes the history of the museum and what visitors will encounter when they visit, and he points out that while most other museums that house antiquities are converted villas, the Egyptian Museum was specially constructed for its purpose. For this catalog he has selected 202 of his favorite items. They are showcased with briefly captioned gorgeous photos (most full-page) that bring the pieces close to the reader's eye

King Tut : the journey through the underworld by Sandro Vannini( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marking the centenary of Howard Carter's first excavations in the Valley of the Kings, and in collaboration with a series of international exhibitions, this comprehensive guide combines a contemporary understanding of the ancient Egyptian afterlife with Sandro Vannini's super-high-resolution photography to cast an enthralling light on the voyage Tutankhamun was thought to make after death. Buried in the 14th century BC but unearthed by Carter in 1922, the objects entombed with Tutankhamun offer an invaluable window on to a long-extinct belief system. Seen today, they create an intricate picture of how the ancient Egyptian people viewed the perilous journey to paradise, a utopian Egypt that could only be entered following the final judgment."--inside jacket front flap
