The civilisation of Ancient Egypt flourished along the fertile banks of the River Nile. It was a civilisation that extended in virtually unbroken continuity from the fourth millennium B.C. to the conquest of Alexander the Great. During this long era of constancy the architectural and artistic styles characteristic of this civilisation changed and developed from period to period and dynasty to dynasty, as this book so vividly shows. Monuments with their wall-reliefs and paintings and treasures and decoration as well as many other works of art are beautifully reproduced in over 400 illustrations, many in colour, which alongside this classic text, now revised and with a new updated bibliography, make this volume the definitive survey of this subject, appealing both to students and the general reader.
