Popular stories of ancient Egypt by G Maspero( Book )

105 editions published between 1852 and 2016 in French and English and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When first published in 1882, the folktales collected in Popular Stories of Ancient Egypt comprised the first anthology of ancient Egyptian narratives ever to be compiled into book form. The culmination of a life's work by Gaston Maspero, a towering figure of nineteenth-century Egyptology, it presented a wealth of information on Egyptian culture, language, history, and society. Since its publication, additional texts have been discovered, deciphered, or translated into modern languages. The present collection is made up of twenty-four tales gleaned from countless ancient written sources, and from a variety of historical periods. It contains some of the most ancient folktales in existence, such as The Tale of the Two Brothers, thought to be the oldest in the world. Other stories include King Khufui and the Magicians, The Lamentations of the Fellah, The Shipwrecked Sailor, The Adventure of Satni-Khamois with the Mummies, The Doomed Prince, and The Story of Rhampsinitus. This edition contains a new foreword by Hasan El-Shamy that describes Maspero's work, and provides for the first time a motif index and extensive identifications of the ancient Egyptian traditions in terms of international tale-types." "Certain to be of interest to folklorists and Egyptologists, this classic collection will also amuse parents, students, storytellers, or anyone who enjoys authentic folk wisdom."--Jacket

Amelia Edwards' English translation of the Manual of Egyptian Archaeology by the renowned French Egyptologist Gaston Camille Charles Maspero (1846-1916) was originally published in 1887. The fifth edition reissued here appeared in 1902, ten years after Edwards' death, under the auspices of Maspero. Edwards' translation was important for generating public interest in Egyptology in Britain. It is a classic work of popular Egyptology that has served for years as an indispensable guide for students, amateur enthusiasts and professionals, and was long relied upon by British tourists visiting Egypt's ancient sites. The book contains chapters on civil and military architecture, religious architecture, ancient tombs, Egyptian painting and sculpture, and industrial art. There are detailed sections on the various materials used including stone, clay, glass, wood, ivory, leather, textile fabrics, iron, lead, and bronze. The volume is beautifully illustrated with over 300 engravings

Extrait : ""Le ciel est gris, des traînées de brume mélancolique flottent sur les berges, une tache jaunâtre marque par intervalles la place où le soleil devrait briller ; est-ce bien l'Égypte, et qu'a-t-elle fait de sa lumière, depuis treize ans que je l'ai quittée? On grelotte sur le Nil, et le pont du bateau serait bientôt inhabitable, si l'on ne se résignait à endosser un paletot d'hiver.""
