This Folio Society book is a beautiful keepsake of the story behind the discovery and deciphering of the world famous Rosetta Stone. The book details how the stone was found and how people soon realized the importance of its three language inscription. It then goes to explain how the engraved text led to clues in deciphering the Egyptian hieroglyphs. The book has three photo inserts to supplement the text. The volume ends with a second book that teaches the reader the basics on how to read those hieroglyphs. ( )
