A renowned authority draws upon his original research to present a clear rendering of the complexities of Egyptian mythology; its gods, worship of the sun and animals, myths, concepts of the afterlife, and magical practices. Wilhelm Max Mueller, an influential scholar of the late nineteenth century, offers a comparative view of Egyptian theology that emphasizes the role of art in religious expression. The comparative view espoused by this book demonstrates that Egyptian religion was by no means as isolated in its growth as previously supposed. The development of religious doctrines, as portrayed in art as well as in literature, receives a close inspection. Magnificently illustrated, the text contains 232 figures that clarify ancient beliefs and customs. In addition to its value as a scholarly reference, this volume has served for generations as a reader-friendly introduction to the vast complexities of Egyptian myth. This 2004 Dover publication is an unabridged republication of the Egyptian section of “The Mythology of All Races, Volume XII”, published by Marshall Jones Company of Boston in 1918. CONDITION: New oversized softcover. Unblemished, unmarked, pristine in every respect. Pages are pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, unmutilated, tightly bound, unambiguously unread.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: The complexities of Egyptian mythology; its gods, sun and animal worship, myths, and magical practices are explored. The development of religious doctrines, as portrayed in art and in literature, also receives a close inspection. Magnificently illustrated, the text contains 232 figures that clarify ancient beliefs and customs. The text is intended to fill the demand for a reliable popular treatise on the title subject and advance the understanding of Egypt’s most interesting bequest to posterity. Contents include: The Local Gods; The Worship of the Sun; Other Gods Connected with Nature; Some Cosmic and Cosmogonic Myths; The Osirian Circle; Some Texts Referring to Osiris-Myths; The Other Principal Gods; Foreign Gods; Worship of Animals and Men; Life After Death; Ethics and Cult; Magic; and Development and Propagation of Egyptian Religion. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: An influential scholar of the 19th century, Muller published his overview of ancient Egyptian mythology as a section of The Mythology of All Races, Volume XII published by the Marshall Jones Company, Boston, in 1918. His arrangement is by the entities worshipped, such as local gods, the sun the Osirian cycle, and foreign gods; but he also considers life after death, ethics, and cult, and magic. He includes much of the literature associated with religion. Like the original, this facsimile edition is not indexed. REVIEW: Profusely illustrated with over 225 line drawings in text. A very early reprint, originally published in 1918. An important and exhaustive study of the Egyptian pantheon of Gods, reprinted as recently as 2005 in paperback. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: An amazing mythology collection! I suppose that some of the work in this book, one of a 13 volume set written between 1916 and 1932 (reprinted in the 1960s), has been changed by more recent scholarship, but there is still nothing to equal this fantastic achievement. The set includes not only the more familiar myths such as Greek and Roman, but pretty well succeeds in its goal to include all of humanity. The text is extremely detailed but very readable; none of the turgid prose so often associated with academia. This volume on Egyptian mythology contains numerous illustrations, both in the text and as plates. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world – but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
