And now for something new… and old!

21 Jul

Here is my first attempt at a gallery.  This is one of my prized possessions.  Well, 2/3 of my prized possession.  This is the 1883 edition of Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians by Sir J. Gardner Wilkinson.  I, unfortunately, need volume 1.  But I am positive I will never find it in the condition of these two volumes.  Loaded with illustrations and amazing woodcuts, plus numerous fold outs, both black and white and in vivid color.  I adore these books.
