Manual of Egyptian archæology and guide to the study of antiquities in Egypt. For the use of students and travellers by G Maspero( Book )

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

Barbara's history : a novel by Amelia B Edwards( Book )

43 editions published between 1800 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book was an immediate contemporary success and established Amelia Edwards's reputation as a novelist. The story of a young woman's growth from chidlhood to maturity is traced through her relationship with Hugh Farquhar whom she idolises from the first moment when, still a child, she meets him, already a mature man of the world. The development of their love for each other makes challenging and even painful demands upon them both before it reaches final fruition. This story of a spirited and talented heroine is set against the background of life in France and Germany and Italy and is rich in narrative and character."--Back cover
Hand and glove : a novel by Amelia B Edwards( Book )

40 editions published between 1800 and 2000 in English and German and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Hamel, unorthodox minister of a small French Protestant community [is] not only sophisticated and highly cultivated but he is also possessed of a powerful sexual magnetism ... When he falls in love with the young and innocent Marguerite, he is brought into striking contrast with the accepted suitor, Charles, a man of inflexible rectitude but, initially at least, little appeal. The progress of their rivalry for Marguerite's favour draws on the resources, intellectual and emotional, of both of them, till it issues in the final dramatic climax."--Back cover
