Picked this up in Waterstone's because I do love reading about Ancient Egypt, etc, and it's been one of those things I keep coming back to lately. This book is mostly a collection of photographs with brief descriptions, not even necessarily grouped in a sensible manner, and including all sorts of things related to just two "great Pharaohs": Tutankhamen and Ramesses II. I won't comment too much on the choice of which Pharaohs to include: I suspect it relies more on which Pharaohs left behind a mass of photogenic artefacts that anything else.

As a book of photographs, loosely themed, it's well done, but hardly a great addition to scholarship or anything like that. ( )
