Cleveland: Cleveland Museum of Art / Yale University Press, 2016. Hardcover. As New (still in shrinkwrap). Sage cloth, black & color illus. dust jacket, 180 pp., 280 color illus. Issued in conjunction with a 2016 exhibition that "introduces readers to three thousand years of Egypt's ancient history by unveiling its famous leaders -- the pharaohs -- using some of the finest objects from the vast holdings of the British Museum. ... [that] include monumental sculpture, architectural pieces, funerary objects, exquisite jewelry, and papyri. The rulers of ancient Egypt were not always male, or even always Egyptian. At times, Egypt was divided by civil war, conquered by foreign powers, or ruled by competing kings. Many of the objects surviving from ancient Egypt represent the image a pharaoh wanted to project, but this publication also looks past the myth to explore the realities and immense challenges of ruling one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever seen." (dj) With a variety of thematic essays and 280 color photographs.
