A History of Egypt During the Xviith and Xviiith Dynasties Volume 2 Hardcover
The present volume of the history of Egypt comprises only a short period of a few centuries; but a period which is more full of material than any other age of Egypt. The foreign wars, the contact with other nations, the architectural activity, the luxury and brilliance of this cycle, all render it the most attractive in the long history of the country.
The present statement of the material is therefore on a far larger scale than in the previous volume; the standard of leaving no fact or monument referring to the regal history unnoticed, having been maintained throughout.
Such a text-book is of necessity only a work of reference in many parts but general observations on the condition of the country, and the circumstances of the rule, have given scope for summarising the view suitably for the historical reader. In particular, the decline of Egyptian rule in Syria has been for the first time treated as a consecutive history.
