Reviewed by Francesca: The first part of this album on ancient Egyptian art presents the author and his passion for Egyptology. The second part consists of plates, representing drawings and outlines of pillars, vases, portraits, columns, niches, plans, and patterns among many others. This is a good reference to the art and architecture of ancient Egypt.

From the book cover: To discover what man eats is to discover - and understand - a host of inter-connected factors in the fields of history, archaeology, medicine, agriculture, art, mythology and religion. The role that food plays in society is more than merely providing sustenance : food has great cultural and political significance, and the choice of a particular food may well involve issues that are of crucial importance to the human race. In recognition of these influences, the authors of this finely illustrated two-volume work have focused their attention on food habits, attitudes and taboos in Ancient Egypt and the beliefs from which they sprang. Splendidly preserved records of this civilisation offer a wealth of information for such a study. The sources of information and the techniques of validation as well as the reasons for erroneous interpretations are lucidly presented. The first volume concentrates on animal based products - chiefly the prerogative of the affluent - while the second deals with cereals, vegetables, fruits and alcoholic beverages, the staple diet of the majority of the race.

Du site de l'éditeur : Le temple de Dendera, admirablement conservé, est probablement la plus aboutie des réalisations architecturales de l’Égypte ptolémaïque et romaine et la richesse des compositions théologiques qui ornent ses murs est incomparable. Le sixième volume offre la deuxième partie de la publication des cryptes, qui, dans ce temple, sont exceptionnellement décorées.
