Abstract

Although Egyptian mummies appeared in America in the late 18th century, an active American presence in Egyptian archaeology did not begin until the very last of the 19th century. These volumes derive from an exhibition featuring artifacts and monuments coming from American expeditions to Egypt and Nubia. The larger volume consists of the catalog of the exhibit with general historical essays, while the smaller volume contains ten historical sumammaries of American work in Egypt and Nubia organized by archaeological time period.
