Egyptian mummies by Grafton Elliot Smith ( Book )
25 editions published between 1924 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Egyptian Mummies is regarded by Egyptologists as the classic account of mummification in ancient Egypt. Originally published in 1924, its re-issue in complete form will be welcomed by all those who have sought rare second hand copies in vain. This book provides the most comprehensive account available of the technical processes and materials employed by the ancient Egyptian embalmers, together with a historical analysis of their modification throughout the dynastic period. The authors draw on fully-illustrated archaeological and pathological evidence together with Egyptian and Greek textual references to provide a thorough survey of the mummification process and attendant funeral ceremonies, and to offer clues to an understanding of the custom's significance and the reasons for its adoption."--BOOK JACKET
